Series/Report: RHET 105, Principles of Composition, John Griswold: Being a fluent writer - no matter what field someone goes into - demands that he or she be fair, coherent and specific. In this course students developed these skills through ethnography, which seeks to reveal how particular cultures construct and understand experience. Students used writing as a way of thinking, seeing, searching for patterns and meaning, and communicating clearly when faced with a complex set of tasks and issues. Students also made gradual but continuous progress towards an ethnographic essay, and reflected on the process of coming to know. In the process, students identified their own assumptions, tried to see others for what they are, and attempted to represent, in words, others' cultural experiences. The course syllabus is available at: http://www.eui.uiuc.edu/docs/syllabi/RHET105F08.pdf.
