EDUC 1170 - FWS: Teens in Schools


     
Fall, spring. 3 credits. Letter grades only.

First-Year Writing Seminar.

B. Duff.

What do research and experience tell us about adolescents in the U.S.? What needs and desires are fundamental, and which are culturally or individually variable? Are U.S. middle and high schools (at least some of them) well designed in light of what we know about teens and the world they are growing up in? Insight into these questions will come from reading, frequent writing, discussion, and weekly trips off campus to work with students at a rural middle or high school.

Outcome 1: Write formal essays that: 1) clearly, concisely, and accurately summarize texts written by scholars writing about education, 2) situate their own theses, and the arguments and evidence for them, in the context of claims and arguments advanced by those who have been writing in the field, 3) exhibit mastery of the conventions (e.g., spelling, punctuation, grammar) of academic English, 4) show academic integrity in their use of citations in APA style, 5) demonstrate growth in function and form, from initial to final draft and from early papers to later ones, 6) convey a sense of caring, engagement, and/or personality without distracting readers from the more “intellectual” qualities of the text

Outcome 2: Use rubrics to provide constructive, actionable feedback on the writing of their peers.

Outcome 3: Participate in class discussions in ways that show active processing of ideas, a growing vocabulary in the discipline, and attention to the contributions of other learners.
