  • INTD 170: Strategies for College Success

    Designed to prepare the incoming students for the expectations of college writing, grammar, research, accepting personal responsibility, discovering self-motivation, mastering self-management, emotional intelligence, creating interdependent support networks, reading comprehension and introducing students to a variety of study skills and strategies. A variety of writing experiences, reading comprehension, study skills and personal development skills and strategies will be discussed and practiced by students. This includes informal journal writing and free-writing, as well as more formalized forms of writing like article analysis, annotated bibliographies and research papers. Important grammatical concepts will be reviewed and practiced as needed throughout the term. Reading comprehension strategies, such as SQR3, will be presented and practiced using multi-disciplinary materials so that students can learn to apply reading strategies across the curriculum in the sciences, social sciences, humanities and fine arts. Study skill strategies, such as concept mapping, vocabulary activities, mnemonic devices, note taking and eight ways to abbreviate will be presented, practiced and applied.

  • WRTG 105: Wrtg: Leadership & Leading

    Writing Seminar lays the foundation for students to participate insightfully in both written and oral academic conversations. The course focuses on three modes of written and oral communication: communication as an ongoing persuasive dialogue with multiple audiences, communication with a reflective self, and communication with a dynamic evolving text. The course also introduces elements of information literacy and critical thinking needed to develop and evaluate academic conversation. Writing Seminar is typically taken by new students in their first two semesters, often as the introduction to general education, to our library, and to academic support services as sites of collaboration rather than remediation. As many new students' only seminar-style class, Writing Seminar can help lay the foundations of not only academic but also social success.
