The world of work is undergoing rapid changes and has left many people — across industries and at varying levels of experience — wondering what comes next.
Can we gain some clues about the future of work by looking at the past? Why do we work in the first place?
Monique Polak shines some light on this history and its implications in Why Humans Work: How Jobs Shape Our Lives and Our World.
Along the way, we'll practice foundational composition skills by writing four multi-draft essays in a variety of forms and topics.
Gain Key Academic Writing Foundations
Students will learn foundational academic writing skills including brainstorming, organization, revision, formatting, and proofreading.
Meet Live Weekly
This is a live class, which means we meet weekly to discuss the reading and explore writing tips. Learners can also interact with each other and the instructor between class meetings on message boards in our online classroom.
Provided materials include reading guides and activities to help with vocabulary and comprehension as well as writing tips to apply to short, informal writing assignments and longer, multi-draft assignments.
Practice Writing as a Process
Most importantly, students will compose four multi-draft papers with individual video feedback on rough drafts and the opportunity to revise a final draft.
