All it takes is a question! In this class, we will use fun, lighthearted, and interesting topics to explore the fundamental skills of research and research writing. Beginning with students’ own interests, we will work through all the stages of a college-level research project at an accelerated pace. Students will learn how to choose a topic, formulate a research question, work with sources, craft a research-based argument, and communicate their ideas to an audience. Expect to leave this class with sharper skills, increased confidence, and a new appreciation for curiosity.
Scheduled Class Time*
