IDND 052 - Writing: Sense of Place


The literature of place and nature is vast. Here is a sampling of some favorite writers who have a special connection to, and reverence for, the earth. To narrow our focus, think of this class as a trek into hidden corners, and sprawling vistas of North America. Class investigations of nature and place will center on responses in our Reading/Writing Journals and group discussion of readings.  Each member of the class will have a turn teaching/leading group discussion alone or with a partner.  Nonfiction is the primary literary genre you will study.  Portions of this course will be run as a writing workshop to help you through all the steps in the writing process:  planning, drafting, revising and editing. We will also learn to be active readers-active reading ensures deeper connections between readings and clear thinking which translates to thoughtful, moving writing.
