The Campus Writing Program conducts a two-day faculty workshop to assist with the design and implementation of your writing intensive course. Once your course proposal has been approved by the Campus Writing Program, you will receive information on time, date and location of the workshop.
Indicate below if additional instructors are planned, but specific individuals have not yet been chosen. Check all that apply

Briefly describe the qualifications of the known graduate instructors, or planned qualifications if graduate instructors are still to be selected, bearing in mind that graduate students teaching honors courses should be advanced students with a record of excellent teaching.

Writing Intensive Course Information

This seminar course surveys applications of economics to unusual and sensitive subjects, including abortion, drugs, racial and ethnic stereotypes, religion, sex and violence. This is a discussion and writing based course and is intended only for mature audiences.
Has not been offered; this is a special topics course that will be taught if we have the teaching capacity to do so... won't know until summer whether the course will be offered.

Hoped to offer it this term (spring 2017), but not able to do so. Had to fill for a different course due to staffing issues.

Please note: "previous WI enrollment" box requires a number be entered, even though it should be "NA"

Writing Intensive Assignments

Pages
Reaction papers
Reaction papers (200 points possible): Each student will write two drafts of two reaction papers. A reaction paper is a 5-6 page essay that applies, expands, or critiques some aspect of class discussion or readings. Reaction papers may include limited normative discussion, but must include substantial positive analysis. The purpose of each reaction paper is to make a value-added contribution to the understanding of topics examined in class; as such, reaction papers should not simply summarize ideas or arguments from class discussion or readings.

The first draft of each reaction paper will be shared with two peer referees (assigned by the instructor). Each peer reviewer will provide a minimum ½ page of comments and suggestions for improving the draft. The final draft should include a cover letter describing how the author responded to the peer-reviews and an appendix consisting of the first draft and peer-reviews.

All reaction papers should be well-written; this means not only free of all spelling and grammatical errors, but also written in an efficient manner (i.e., clear and succinct). Papers must be double-spaced with one-inch margins, printed single-sided in 12-point font and with all pages securely stapled. In addition, all references must be cited in a consistent professional style.

First drafts of reaction papers are due on the median and final class dates; peer reviews are due within 24 hours and final drafts are due one week later (see course schedule).

Additional Comments

In general, special topics courses may be taught as a 3 credit course, a 2 credit course or a 1 credit course, but any particular special topics course is listed for a specific number of credits (i.e., students do not have a choice of how many credits; the instructor has the choice when setting up the course)

The course in question is a 3 credit course.
Patricia Luckenotte (luckenottep) (Thu, 23 Feb 2017 15:15:52 GMT): Per email confirmation from Lynn Riddell 2/23/17, this course will not be added for Fall at this time
