ENWR 380 Lectures


 

Greg and Jon lead a lecture once a week for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Each lecture introduces students to a new principle from the Little Red Schoolhouse, which students can then put into practice as writers and editors.

To drive home this principle of learning through experience, all the lectures are organized inductively. They may begin with a review of the previous session, but the current session almost always begins with paired examples for them to distinguish and then explain. In this way, students are forced to wrestle with concepts and explanations before they get the explanations for their intuitions. As the lecture continues, students develop a definition of the principle and begin to practice picking the principle out of models.

Instructors are required to attend lectures, so that they can become more comfortable with the material and distribute course packets to their students.
