WRIT 015 - Writing and Culture
 An intensive seminar, enrolling no more than 15 students, focused on developing students’ ability to use writing as a tool for inquiry, to develop their writing through an iterative process, and to practice writing in different rhetorical situations. Students should take this course as early as possible and no later than the end of the sophomore year.

The Writing and Culture Seminar helps students develop their ability to:

- Read critically in ways that are attentive to language, context, and form

- Write in ways that are appropriate for different rhetorical situations, with awareness of genre, context, and technology

- Deploy language’s many resources, including its figurative power as well as conventions of grammar, punctuation, syntax, and semantics, to shape and communicate meaning with clarity and fluency

- Research, evaluate, and synthesize appropriate evidence in order to build and support effective analyses and arguments.
