Description

In 2005 faculty in the Northern Arizona University School of Forestry initiated a project to replace the required sophomore-level writing course taught by the English Department with a new course, “Writing in Forestry,” taught within the School. The goal of the course replacement was to improve students’ experience and competence with the types of writing emphasized in upper division forestry courses as well as by professional forest managers. The School collaborated with graduate teaching assistants from the Department of English to develop and teach the new course. Our presentation will explain the learning outcomes, approach, and content of the new course which has been taught successfully for two years.
