What Is R&C About?

Where your R&C course fits in the UC Berkeley curriculum, your department, your students’ needs, and your professional development.

Course Design for R&C

A methodical way to turn your course ideas into a well designed set of student learning objectives, activities, and assessments.

Engaged Reading

For many lower-division students, reading is a receptive or decoding process. Give them explicit procedures for making reading a critical, creative process.

Writing in a Genre

Learn how to describe to students what is distinctive about the kinds of papers you will assign in your R&C course.

Assignment Design and Sequencing

Consider the length and complexity of the assignments you give, and sequence them so that students can build from lower-stakes to higher-stakes papers.
