English 101 Section A12. Writing about Ways of Knowing

What We Know, How We Know

This course addresses the slippery realms of knowledge, particularly as they pertain to reading and writing. What do we know? How do we know what we know? Are facts knowledge? What is a body of knowledge? Who decides what is important to know? Together, we will explore what knowing means in different contexts, and what values are placed on knowledge depending on perspective.
