It does so through reading, writing, and collaborative experiences that will help you to develop analytical skills and critical thinking. Because this is a writing course, composing and revising are important features of the experience in W131, and so you will find a range of activities designed to help you to conceive, compose, and revise three essays, including image analysis, summary-strong response, and analysis-synthesis. Each of these essays will be part of a writing project that also includes a Writer’s Statement. Assessment of your work in W131 will occur throughout the semester and in a final portfolio consisting of a Retrospective Essay and the revision of one of the writing project essays.

These principles form a conceptual framework for all students' general education but necessarily permeate the curriculum in the major field of study as well. More specific expectations for IUPUI's graduates are determined by the faculty in a student's major field of study. Together, these expectations speak to what graduates of IUPUI will know and what they will be able to do upon completion of their degree. In W131, as in all IUPUI courses, many of the PULs are addressed. The particular PUL that receives the most emphasis in this course is the following: Core Communication and Quantitative Skills Definition: The ability of students to express and interpret information, perform quantitative analysis, and use information resources and technology--the foundational skills necessary for all IUPUI students to succeed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
