CMP125 Research Writing Spring ’12 This class will provide students with an introduction to the process of library research and correctly documented writing. It emphasizes the refinement of critical reading, thinking, and writing strategies that will enable students to build on their own knowledge and ideas by reading and integrating multiple sources in an academic format. Objective This course aims to teach students to formulate manageable essay topics, develop argumentative theses, and effectively use research to develop their own ideas. Specific goals include the following: Write research papers that are originally conceived, substantially developed, logically argued, stylistically refined, and correctly documented, Develop a sense of an academic voice, an awareness of what readers already know about a topic, and a sensitivity towards differing audience opinions, Expand and enhance analytical and critical reading, thinking, and writing skills, Analyze student compositions in a sophisticated manner, and Prepare research projects using the full range of print and electronic resources.
