Thesis & Technical Writing
Spring 2008

Course Description: Rhetorical techniques for professional expository prose;
intertextual argumentation and analysis. Junior level classification.

Course Overview, Goals and Objectives: The goal of the thesis writing course in
Maritime Studies is to help students attain the rhetorical techniques effective writers need
to produce professional expository prose and helps students apply these strategies to
challenging writing tasks, particularly as these involve intertextual argumentation and

The five principal course objectives 1) to develop a sound writing process which includes
prewriting, drafting and revision 2) to apply critical reasoning skills within the
conventions of academic discourse 3) to cultivate strong academic reading skills 4) to
conduct intertextual arguments analysis and 5) to produce more extended forms of
academic writing. In order to meet these objectives, you will engage in a series of
individual writing assignments, collaborative projects and group and individual
conferences with the instructor.

The course focuses on strengthening your ability to critique and interpret information
f?om a variety of sources and to employ that information to advance your own
argumentative positions. The assignments in the course encourage you to develop
sophisticated reading and analytical abilities and to engage issues and ideas drawn from
the assigned readings. You are expected to produce writing that displays closely
reasoned argument andlor analysis that employs organizational structures appropriate to
complex discourse and that makes use of effectively selected and accurately documented
outside sources. In addition, your writing should show maturity in terms of diction and
syntactic fluency. At the conclusion of the course, you should be able to evaluate,
analyze and engage in writing with research pertinent to the field, as well as develop a
15-to-20 page senior thesis proposal document.

Required Texts: Technical Communication 10" Ed. By John Lannon

Course Requirements & Grading:
Proposal                                      40%
Journal Reviews (six total)                   30%
Rough Drafts                                  10%
Oral Report                                   10%
Engaged participation                         10%

The proposal will be a 15-to-20page document developed from a topic of your choosing
and through an engaged writing process that requires prewriting, draRing and revision of
the text before a final document is produced at the semester's end. Journal reviews are
shorter written documents fkom 2-to-5 pages that evaluate, analyze, and respond to the
research of scholars within the field and will focus on a topic that you choose. The oral
report will be based upon the research question you outline for the proposal. Finally,
engaged participation means the extent to which you contribute to collaborative work,
conferences, discussions, and the writing process employed in the course.
Your work will be evaluated against an evaluation rubric (see following pages) that
outlines criteria in six areas: 1) cogency, or the analytical insight or argumentative force
of the writing 2) addressing the issue, or the extent to which the paper explores the issues
set forth in your writing prompt. 3) support, or the extent to which the paper's assertions
are supported with examples and evidence appropriate to the audience 4) style, or the
effectiveness of the paper's sentence structure, fluency and its tone in terms of its purpose
and intended audience 5 ) control, or the organizational quality of the paper both in terms
of its overall structure and its individual paragraphs and 6) grammar and mechanics
which refers to the quality of the paper at the surface level including grammar, spelling,
punctuation and format.

Classroom Policies
l Don't miss classes or conferences and keep up with reading and responses. You
are responsible for your own attendance and for the consequences of any absences. More
t h three unexcused absences from the class will result in a final grade reduction. If you
have an excused absence and you have paperwork (i.e. a doctor's note), you need to give
it to me, but you do not need to discuss the nature or cause of your absence with me.
Conferences are central to the workshop format of the class and we will spend nearly half
of the class in conferences. Be aware that they are not optional and both your work and
your grade will suffer as a consequence of missing them. Group conferences will be
held in my office in CLB 106.
2) Submit your work on time. Late rough drafts or final drafts will be penalized 113
grade (i.e. B to B-). Also be aware that essays that have been generated without a
conference will not be accepted. In other words, if you fail to turn in a rough draft, do
not schedule a conference, and attempt to turn in a final draft, your paper will be returned
to you. I allow one late paper for each student at the student's discretion (see following
pages). Please do not ask for an extension on a paper once you have exhausted this
3) Statement on Academic Integrity
The University takes a very strict view on matters of academic integrity, especially in
cases of plagiarism and illegitimate assistance. ''AnAggie does not lie, cheat, or steal or
tolerate those who do. For more information regarding academic integrity please visit

the Honor Council Rules and Procedures on the web
Plagiarism, as defined in the Honor Council Rules, is the appropriation of another
person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.
        Intentionally, knowingly, or carelessly presenting the work of another as one's
        own (i.e., without crediting the author or creator).
        Failing to credit sources used in a work product in an attempt to pass off the work
        as one's own.
       Attempting to receive credit for work performed by another, including papers
       obtained in whole or in part fkom individuals or other sources. Students are
       permitted to use the services of a tutor (paid or unpaid), a professional editor, or
       the University Writing Center to assist them in completing assigned work, unless
       such assistance is explicitly prohibited by the instructor. If such services are used

                  Environmental Law and Policy Concentration

A) There is currently no undergraduate major at TAMU or TAMUG specifically
   designed to explore the laws and policies relevant to the marine environment and
   its management. Rather, there are majors focused on the science (Marine Sciences
   or Marine Biology), the science/business interface (Ocean and Coastal Resources
   or Marine Fisheries), the business and management of ports and waterborne
   commerce (Maritime Administration) or on the human aspects of the coastal and
   maritime environment (Maritime Studies.)
B) In support of all of these majors, TAMUG currently has a large number of courses
   that present and delve into the applicable laws and policies, but no overarching
   interdisciplinarylook at the development of such. This proposed area of
   concentration would fill this need.
C) The proposed environmental law and policy concentration is most likely to appeal
   to strong students who are interested in the marine and coastal environment but
   who are more interested in serving the public sector than in practicing science or
   business. Perhaps their ultimate goal will be law school or politics. Very
   appealing combinations will be feasible with minors in ocean and coastal
   resources, English, economics, business or a physical science.
