This module assumes that instructors will utilize other learning objectives (e.g. Writing as a Process, Collaboration, Grammar and Style, Critical Thinking, Conducting Research, and Understanding Rhetorical Situations, etc.) to teach writing, using this section merely as illustrations of academic genres or rhetorical modes.
