This course gave students practice in: critically reading and analyzing texts, forming arguments, gathering and evaluating research, synthesizing multiple sources, conducting qualitative research, and composing (inventing, drafting, revising). This section of Rhet. 105 was centered on the theme of “Race and the University.” Our course was part of UIUC’s Ethnography of the University Initiative (EUI)—a cross-campus initiative that supports undergraduate research about the university experience and encourages the archiving of this research.
