Syllabus: Education 179W Winter Quarter 2012 (Goodridge) 1 Instructor: Shane Goodridge Office Hours: TBA. Location: 3200 Education Phone: (949) 824-5118 Email: sgoodrid@uci.edu Advanced Composition for Teachers Tuesday/Thursday: 9:30-10:50- ED 2009 Prerequisite: Completion of UCI’s lower division writing requirement. Goals and Objectives: The fundamental goal of this course is to help students write and present confidently, independently and critically. Assignments are designed to motivate students to look at writing as a process anchored in pre-writing, drafting, editing, synthesis and revision. Since this class is intended for future teachers, a significant portion of class time will be devoted to the assessment and evaluation of the written product; this process will involve the production and refinement of evaluation rubrics. Reading and writing assignments ask students to investigate and critically respond to issues central to the pedagogical challenge of teaching the writing process. To help make the methods of teaching more explicit in our coursework, assignments reflect goals stated for eleventh and twelfth grades in the California Content Standards for Public Schools. By the time a student is finished with the class, he or she will be more confident speaking in front of a group, and his or her writing should reflect a sophisticated, authoritative voice, be lucid, organized and generally free of editorial problems.
