WR-110 Critical Thinking & Writing I

3 Credits

In Critical Thinking and Writing, students probe the ways that reading and writing are related at fundamental levels. They consider how writing is an intellectual activity that helps them to interpret our world critically, analytically, and creatively. The class uses writing as a process, subject to interpretation and revision. In this process, students learn how to write analytically, using other texts as well as our own words to construct arguments, interpretations and meanings. Students will interrogate basic issues of representation, language, and the complicated relationship between words, images and “things.” They will also explore the connections between subjectivity, law, authority and narrative.
