Full course description
Reading, Writing, & Inquiry I is a one-semester Indiana University course that offers instruction and practice in the critical reading and writing skills required for college-level work, with an emphasis on written assignments that call for summary, critique, analysis, and arguments based on sources. The purpose of this course is to prepare students for the rigor of writing throughout college. The focus is on scholarly investigation of sources, critical thinking and reading, learning how to recognize and utilize specific writing strategies, skills and fluency. Each unit will include preliminary work and assignments leading to a major essay to conclude. The course will begin on August 27th and end December 14th.
Successful completion of this course will result in dual credit: high-school credit through IUHS and university credit through Indiana University. The course fees will, therefore, include IUHS course tuition and fees plus an additional $75 for the college credit (3 credit hours) through IU. (The $75 college credit fee will be charged separately.)
This course is designed for high-school seniors.
Completion of 11th Grade English is required.
