In this model, each General Education course addresses discipline-specific versions of meta-level questions—that is, questions about questions—concerning some topic or issue. What one asks about global warming, for example, depends on what perspective one adopts. The knowledge about global warming that is available in different disciplines—biology, meteorology, economics, political science, and ethics, among others—is the result of posing and answering different kinds of questions. The General Education Program asks you to examine the differences among the kinds of questions that it is possible to ask, to pay attention to what constitutes an important and well-formed question in any particular field of study, and to understand how the way a question is formulated limits the answers it is possible to arrive at. The General Education Program at UNF, then, asks you to ask yourself, “How, when, and with what consequences do different disciplines ask different kinds of questions? Why do they ask certain questions rather than others? Are there questions that are off limits? What kind of information is necessary in order to answer the question at hand?” In sum, the General Education Program asks you to reflect on the very way you yourself formulate questions. After completing the General Education writing courses at UNF, students will 1. Demonstrate skills that prepare them to ask meta-level questions of texts and tasks that they may encounter in their disciplinary coursework but also ask these types of questions of all texts. 2. Demonstrate skills that prepare them for discipline-specific writing and research tasks. 3. Demonstrate skills that prepare them to cooperate on writing and presentations tasks that they may encounter in their coursework, careers, and community lives.
