WRIT 1100 - Prison Partners Library Research

Fall, Spring. 1-2 credits, variable. S/U grades only.

This course is encouraged for, but not limited to: CPEP Teaching Assistants.

H. Furnas.

This course introduces students to library research and facilitates collaboration with incarcerated students. Students will learn how to search for and gather relevant sources in a variety of online and print formats and complete an annotated bibliography. In addition to finding and evaluating academic materials, students enrolled in this class will be supporting the incarcerated students receiving their Certificate in the Liberal Arts via the Cornell Prison Education Program (CPEP), who otherwise would not have access to academic research materials to complete their capstone projects. By partnering with incarcerated students, students enrolled in the class will collaboratively define and refine a research topic, and share the knowledge they have learned in this class with CPEP students. One-credit for students enrolled in the classroom portion only with an additional credit for those enrolled in the lab portion that requires students to visit a regional correctional facility to meet with their incarcerated student partner.
