Syllabus Description:

English 298C is an Interdisciplinary Writing Program (IWP) course ("C" or "W" credit) linked with JSIS 201 in Winter 2018.

In English 298C students will develop reading, research, writing, revising, and editing skill and confidence.  Assignments in English 298C are based on readings, lectures and assignments in JSIS 201, and you will get feedback from the English 298C instructor on major assignments before you turn your work in for a grade.

Whether new to college writing, looking for a "C" or "W" credit, or preparing for the JSIS major, students who take English 298 links with JSIS lectures have found that the linked pair of courses deepens their learning and improves their performance in both classes.   Students' comments on course evaluations say the English 298 writing link helps them develop the way they think about writing, enjoy the writing process, and improves their ability to read and respond to their own and their peers' writing.  Students also find that English 298 contributes to their learning in the JSIS lecture and to their ability to make connections between their academic work and current events.

Any student enrolled in JSIS 201 may register for English 298C; there are no prerequisites. UW students may count English 298 toward either the "C"(composition) or W"(additional writing) requirement, and may take up to three writing links, so you can register for English 298C even if you've already taken a composition course (such as English 131) or another writing link.
