ENGW 202 - Writing About Disability


4 credit(s)
This is both a writing intensive course and an introduction to Disability Studies. Disability Studies understands disability as referring not only to a biological or medical condition, but also to a community of people (the largest minority in the U.S.); to a civil rights movement; to a complex set of social and ethical issues; to a universal human experience; and to the ways cultures respond to particular bodies, minds, and behaviors. The class, taught with the assistance of two faculty from Pacific’s School of Physical Therapy, will help students understand disability in its social, cultural, and ethicaldimensions. It will also help students develop critical thinking skills, understand rhetorical methods, and shape effective prose styles through writing expository essays and a research paper.
