Title: Segregation or Not?
Author(s): Foster, Marcus
Subject(s): Race Sports University 2009 Spring RHET102
Issue Date: 2009
Series/Report: Rhet 102, College Writing II, B1 (Prof. Elaine Wood):This course engaged issues of race, diversity and representation at the university. Its aim was for students to learn basic techniques for critically engaging with academic texts, structuring argumentative essays, and critiquing their own work. This was expected to be achieved by a series of writing assignments, which prepared students to look at various aspects of campus culture with a critical eye. From these assignments students developed a larger research project that brought them into conversation with their environment and other scholars, and the research of previous students.
