Teachers will apply both theory and practice in the classroom and will design assignments that promote critical inquiry. Usually for students attending the Appalachian Writing Project.</p><p><strong>Requisites:</strong> </p><p><strong>Credits:</strong> 4</p><p><strong>Repeat/Retake Information:</strong> May not be retaken.</p><p><strong>Lecture/Lab Hours:</strong> 4.0 seminar</p><p>Eligible Grades: A-F,PR,WP,WF,WN,FN,AU,I</p>
