The Textbook, 1000, and 1100

The following topics/chapters from Greene and Lidinsky’s From Inquiry to Academic Writing will be covered in WRI 1000

habits of mind for academic writers (chapter 1)
reading rhetorically (audience? purpose?) (chapter 2)
annotation (chapter 2)
claims of fact, value, policy (What? So what?  Now what?) (chapter 3)
thesis statements (chapter 5)
summary, paraphrase, quotation (chapter 7)
ethos, pathos, logos (chapter 8)
introductions, conclusions, paragraph development (chapter 9)
revision (chapter 10)
basics of citation (appendix)

Some of these topics—annotating, reading critically, reading rhetorically, revision—will be useful to cover again in WRI 1100.  These are important concepts, and it is good for students to encounter them more than once and from different teachers’ perspectives.

The following topics/chapters will be covered in WRI 1100

finding and evaluating sources, annotated bibliographies (chapter 6)
writing a research question (chapter 11)
research methods (chapter 11)
establishing a timeline for a research project (chapter 11)
the fine details of citation

From Inquiry to Academic Writing also includes a chart lining up our four course outcomes with the chapters of the book (xxiii-xvi).
