Interdisciplinary Academic Writing
Spring 2020 - Dr. De was a really nice woman, and I'm overall pretty happy I took this as a writing II class. The material we learned wasn't necessarily the most interesting, but the fact that we were online made it much easier to sit through the 2 hour lectures. Mostly, the class is spent going through a Powerpoint, watching film clips, and discussing issues of diversity in the clips. You have to do some talking during class (as a warning). From a workload standpoint, the class is pretty easy as there are occasionally some readings and small assignments. Most of your grade is determined by a research presentation, followed by a research paper (12-13 pages) on the same topic. Dr. De lets you pick your own topic to research, so as long as you choose something that's somewhat interesting it isn't too much of a problem. Overall, really caring professor and a somewhat easier writing II class if you put in the effort.
