These are the courses which still need instructors:

WRT 95: Reading and Writing for College is our 8 credit developmental class (though does not count for credit toward graduation); about 10-15% of our incoming class goes into this course. Course work focuses on developing students’ abilities to summarize and write brief argument. Class work focuses on the “performing student model,” in which students are taught that being a student is just another code that they need to switch into. Available sections include one meeting on MTWTh from 8-9:45 am one meeting on MTWTh from 4-5:45. Compensation for one section (capped at 16 students) is $6,150.

WRT 105: Enhanced Analytic and Argumentative Writing is our 6 credit intensive first-year writing class. About 45-55% of our incoming class goes into this course. This course is the equivalent of WRT 106, the “standard” first-year writing course; it has the same outcomes and assignments, but instead of meeting just twice a week, it meets for 3 days a week. Students enter into this class if their placement tests demonstrate that they are not quite ready for the standard class, but that they do not need a remedial one. Available sections include MWF from 10-11:45, 12-1:45, and 4-5:45. Compensation for one section (capped at 19 students) is $4,737.50.
