EDU/ENG 612 Seminar in Professional Writing for Teachers (Advanced Institute) (3 credits) Generally offered: Summer
This capstone course is designed for participants to develop the dual roles of writer and teacher of writing. Although the course will work with both types of professional writing, each participant will choose one of two emphases: (1) research writing growing out of a classroom inquiry into an issue of the teaching of writing; (2) expository and creative writing growing out of an inquiry into his/her own evolution as a writer. At the heart of both projects is a study of what is involved in becoming a writer. The work may build on writing produced in the Prairie Lands Writing Project Invitational Institute Prerequisite: Completion of ENG/EDU 610 Prairie Lands Writing Project Invitational Institute.
