Spring 2017 quarter

Taught by

What's the relationship between language and thinking, or between thinking and writing, and what does that relationship mean for us as writers?  The purpose of this course is explore the relationship between writing and thinking, language and thought, and to understand how becoming aware of that relationship can help us become more effective writers, better critical thinkers, and stronger analytical readers. Students in this course will tackle the question of writing and thinking head-on,  reading about it, writing about it, and reflecting on their own experiences as writers and thinkers. We'll also examine what it means to "reflect" on our experiences--the role reflection plays in learning.
