Writing and the Environment

Writing and the Environment

Part of MIT's innovative OpenCourseWare Project, that provides materials from MIT classes to the public on the web, the site includes materials from an introductory expository writing course that focuses on the environment. Course materials provide suggested readings from naturalists, scientists, policy makers and others. The model assignments provided direct students to write from a variety of voices (personal, analytical, informative) and provide writing workshop guidelines along with a sample paper.
