WRR314H1: Writing for Social Change: A Community-Engaged Learning Experience


INI414H1, WRR414H1

How might we write to empower individuals and their communities to act towards social change? This community-engaged learning course uses theories of social change and persuasion to examine a variety of genres. Through collaboration with a campus or other community partner, students will apply their academic learning and skills to writing-related projects that address human and community needs in a reciprocal manner. Activities and reflections will provide opportunities for students to strengthen critical thinking and communicative competencies. Writing projects may involve composing texts in multimodal and/or digital forms.
