Examples of special topics include peace communication and mother-daughter communication.
INTD 105: WrtgSem: Leadership & Leading
Writing Seminar is a course focusing on a specific topic while emphasizing writing practice and instruction, potentially taught by any member of the College faculty. Because this is primarily a course in writing, reading assignments will be briefer than in traditional topic courses, and students will prove their understanding of the subject matter through writing compositions rather than taking examinations.
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.
