ENG335 Community Writing: Great Falls revised syllabus (Course or Curricular Material)
Title: ENG335 Community Writing: Great Falls revised syllabus
Author: Dr. Julie O'Connell
Abstract: Course: ENG 335: Community Writing: The Great Falls, 3 c Semester: Fall 2020 Each of us is a member of a variety of communities (neighborhood, workplace, house of worship, team, town, state, country, world, just to name a few). We navigate these communities daily: transitioning between them and often defining ourselves by them. Writing gives all of us an opportunity to extend audience outside of the traditional and sometimes constricting academic context. Community Writing promotes citizenship. In general, the course is theme based depending on the instructor’s preference. Themes might include economic inequality, race, gender, the local food revolution, climate change, human suffering, immigration, homelessness, prisons, etc. Over the course of the semester, students read the perspectives of a variety of thinkers (social scientists, biologists, educational theorists, journalists, citizens, etc.). Texts are posted in the Brightspace shell for the course. The class assumes a workshop format with in-class discussion and regular reading and writing assignments outside of the classroom. Students write papers and keep a weekly journal. For this particular class, students conduct interviews with individuals from  Paterson. They complete a variety of research and writing tasks that may include articles, interviews, profiles, histories, reports, fact sheets, reviews, and web-based writing of use to audiences outside of the University. Some of the writing for the course will be published and distributed to a much larger audience and to different kinds of readers than the student is accustomed to, allowing them to experience how their writing affects the community.  In addition to making a difference in the community, the course aims to make impressive additions to students' résumés and, in many cases, help them obtain internships and other work opportunities for the future.
