Detailed Job Description

The Bentley University Department of English & Media Studies seeks applicants to teach Expository Writing II: Advanced Inquiry in Writing beginning Spring 2015. Below is a brief description of the course.

Expository Writing II reinforces and advances the lessons of Expository Writing I, leading students toward understanding and mastery of the processes involved in sustained inquiry: questioning, hypothesizing, testing, re-hypothesizing and retesting. Students undertake an ambitious intellectual project that culminates in a final paper in which they report on the progress they have made through extensive, in-depth inquiry. Projects may draw on library and Internet sources and/or may entail original research such as interviews, observations, surveys and service learning experiences. Classes are limited to 20 students. Instructors choose their own topics and readings to provide a unifying theme to the course.
