The purpose of the Warren Writing sequence is to enable undergraduate students, through intensive practice, to read and write academic arguments in preparation for their work in various academic disciplines. It is required of all Warren College students.
Prerequisite: Satisfaction of the university Entry Level Writing Requirement (ELWR) also known as Subject A. Open to Warren College students only. (Letter grade only.)
Each year, all classes focus on a single topic for the 10A course, and writing assignments are consistent across all 10A sections. The topic for 2013-2014 is "Technology, Identity, and the Written Word."
Required texts: "Academic Argumentation: Technology, Identity, and the Written Word" (2013-14 Warren Writing 10A Course Reader), and A Writer’s Reference, by Diana Hacker and Nancy Sommers (UCSD custom version). These can be purchased at the UCSD Bookstore.
How does technology shape our sense of self and our interactions with others? How does it challenge traditional understandings of the written word and the ownership of ideas? What power does it assert to change political, economic, and social systems? Are these changes desirable? Warren Writing 10A invites you to consider the technology that you encounter daily and to assess how that technology shapes the way you see, understand, and live in the world.
Inquiry of this nature is central to academic work. Scholars generate knowledge by articulating interesting questions, gathering the best possible evidence, and shaping what they have learned into arguments that are clear, persuasive, and logically sound. As a student in WCWP 10A, you will cultivate these same scholarly practices of formulating questions, articulating claims, and using evidence to craft informed and cogent arguments.
The Warren College Writing Program sequence is designed to enable you and your peers, through intensive practice, to read and write academic arguments in various academic disciplines. In our courses, you will learn to analyze arguments; to make thoughtful decisions and connections based on that analysis; to practice all aspects of the writing process; to generate ideas for writing; to make a claim that is informed by multiple sources; to incorporate premises and evidence to support that claim; to integrate your sources effectively; to cite sources appropriately and correctly; to weigh various kinds of feedback and effectively revise; to develop the ability to reflect on your own thinking and writing; and to use what is learned on future writing projects.
