Welcome to the UWHS Program in Writing and Rhetoric!

English 131 and English 111 understand writing as social action and emphasize language as tied to identity, culture, and power. Students' diverse language resources, knowledge, and goals are centered and provide a starting point as they learn to engage writing, reading, research, and rhetorical skills to compose ethically, critically, and impactfully across different contexts, audiences, and genres both within and beyond the university. Topics and projects vary in these courses, which engage various texts and contexts to teach writing, including personal, public, academic, workplace, popular, and community genres and settings.
