W2 Proposal Form

The First-Year Seminar and Writing Committee and faculty have developed writing guidelines and commitments for W2 courses. Those guidelines are at http://www.bates.edu/dof/teaching-and-advising/writing-attentive-courses/.  Each question below is linked to one or more of the five categories of shared commitments for a W2 course and suggests sample strategies for approaching these learning goals.  To propose a course for W2 designation, please answer each question by describing specific ways you will address these goals in your course.  In writing these descriptions, you may find it useful to consider how this course would differ from a similar but non-writing-attentive course you might teach.
