Special Instructions:

Held in Room 3117 in Lincoln Hall. In this course we will explore, study, and produce social media posts and Honorable Mentions, the LAS James Scholar program e-newsletter. Like academic writing, we develop digital writing skills in order to meet the needs of our audience: in this case, the LAS James Scholar community. We will incorporate readings and discussions of rhetoric and digital writing as a form of community-building as we learn how to write for different social media platforms, how to organize our media team, and how to represent, speak for, and speak to our fellow LAS James Scholars. You will not only be expected to study how to write in these mediums, but you will also learn the importance of planning, pre-writing, editing, and rewriting. This course provides real-world writing, organizational, and critical thinking experience as you work in a team to produce 8 issues of Honorable Mentions and regular social media posts throughout the semester.
