At the end of the module students will typically be able to:
1. demonstrate a knowlege and understanding of a range of theories and writing;
2. demonstrate an ability to explore a range of writing practices from a variety of theoretical perspectives;
3. demonstrate an ability to produce their own writing and to reflect critically upon it;
4. demonstrate an ability to express themselves clearly in writing and in speech.
This module aims to develop students' knowledge and understanding of a range of theories of writing and to enable them to explore a range of writing practices from a variety of theoretical perspectives. It also aims to develop students' ability to produce and present their own writing and their reflections on writing. By developing a self-reflexive writing practice, this module will prepare students for the Writing Project in the final semester.
