This course combines frequent writing practice with discussions of rhetorical theories and strategies for teaching writing.

The course also provides information about professional resources and ways to design effective writing courses, assignments, and instructional materials. Several writing assignments give students firsthand experience with instructional techniques; a term project permits students to design a writing course, examine professional issues, or conduct original research.
