Undergraduate Assignments

  • WRA 491-02: Medical Rhetoric and Science Writing — Maria Novonty and Bill Hart-Davidson shared their syllabus and the first assignment for their course. Maria said they also asked students to engage in an activity called #sciencesays. In this activity they ask students to take a pop culture saying like “mo money, mo problems” and translate it into scientific discourse. (Maria said: So it would be something like “hardship increases in direct proportion to wealth.” Students then tweet out their translations, tagging it with a clue like #biggie.)
