In this service-learning section of Composition II, "Writing in the Community," students volunteer 15 hours at nonprofit or social service organizations they select. They write essays for our class about that organization and their experiences there.They also write pieces directly for the agencies where they work items such as newsletter articles, Web pages, brochures, letters and speeches. Our focus is on discovering genuine purposes and audiences for our writing, and on learning the role that writing plays in real-world organizations.
