CO301B: Writing in the Disciplines, Sciences

CO301B builds on the writing principles and processes practiced in CO150. CO301B focuses on studying the contexts in which writing for non-technical science material appears and practicing similar kinds of writing for those audiences (non-specialist academic and non-academic audiences). This course offers students multiple opportunities both to read and analyze varieties of science writing and to research, write, and revise their own science writing on appropriate topics. Students will complete a carefully sequenced series of assignments of text analysis at the beginning of the semester and write original work, often based on library and field research, in the second half of the semester.
