In this course, we will focus on developing good writing habits and a positive relationship with writing in both German and English. We will establish a daily writing practice, set up accountability measures, and work in a collaborative manner. Students will apply what we learn to the writing and completion of a final research project or thesis, while simultaneously honing skills that will serve them in the future. In addition to weekly writing assignments, we will do extensive primary and secondary reading in both German and English on each other's chosen research topics, ultimately also coming away with a deeper understanding of parts of culture and history pertaining to the German-speaking world.
Satisfies German Studies major and minor requirement.
