Angles's Full Profile
Angles is an annual online magazine of exemplary writing by students in four foundational writing courses at MIT: 21W.730: Writing on Contemporary Issues; 21W.731: Writing and Experience; 21W.732: Science Writing and New Media; and 21W.734J: Writing About Literature.In these classes, students learn to read more critically, to address specific audiences for particular purposes, to construct effective arguments and narratives, and to use and cite source material properly. Students in these courses write a great deal; they prewrite, write, revise, and edit their work for content, clarity, tone, and grammar and receive detailed feedback from instructors and classmates. Assigned readings are related to the thematic focus of each course, and are used as demonstrations of writing techniques. The pieces in Angles may be used as teaching tools and practical examples for other students and self-learners to emulate.Angles 2009 Angles 2008
