|Abstract:||I researched the advantages and disadvantages of having an interracial roommates. I used articles, survey, and interview as my resources. Based on the articles, interviews, and survey, I concluded that students having an interracial roommate hardly get along with their roommates. However, they learn a new culture from the roommates when they do get friendly with each other. I concluded that the university should make students keep having a roommate from a different race or ethnicity because it would be helpful to decrease the racial difference on campus.|
|Course / Semester:||RHET105 Section B4C3 (Race and Ethnicity at UIUC)
Professor Thomas Herakovich
In this Rhetoric 105 class students were expected to: 1. develop skills as readers and writers by reading and writing sophisticated prose, including ethnographic papers/books/articles and research papers/journals/books/articles; 2. experience writing as a process of revision and collaboration, where longer, more complex pieces grow out of earlier work—ideas, collaboration, field notes, summaries, abstracts, data tables, charts, and graphs; 3. reflect and analyze conventional and personal reading and writing processes as readers and writers while reading, writing about, and discussing the texts of the course: published work, peers’ work, as well as personal work; 4. become more practiced at using writing as a means of investigation, writing as an early strategy for discovering and for answering questions, thus challenging the commonplace belief that all writing is designed to prove something once and for all; 5. identify and connect the intellectual and philosophical insights that arise when reading and writing personal and ethnographic essays, to the contexts of our day to day lives; 6. accomplish 1-5 above within a course context dedicated to investigating Race and Ethnicity here at UIUC and elsewhere through theorizing and practicing the art of writing and critiquing personal, ethnographic, academic papers, and various forms of data presentation.
