Exercises

  1. Investigate the possibility of adding a special interest class to the curriculum in your field. First, you'll need to obtain the necessary data on the requirements to add a new course in your department. Then, you'll need to do some exploratory work on the interest other students might have in such a course. You might write up a brief questionnaire to assess interest. Finally, after putting the procedure and interest assessment together, write a brief report to your English instructor on the feasibility of your idea. Consider your instructor a first-level reviewer; if you get the go-ahead from her or him, you might then submit your report to your department chair.

  2. Investigate the possibility of establishing a new student service or facility, or enhancing an existing one: an after-dark transit or escort service for women, a counseling service for minorities, an up-to-date computer lab. As in exercise 1, you'll have to obtain the necessary data on the need for such a service or facility and then determine whether existing resources can provide or be expanded to accommodate the change you think is necessary. Your investigation can be preliminary, but it should be specific about what needs to be done and how it should be done, although the work may have to begin in the future. Keeping these points in mind, prepare a short report to an appropriate audience of students (perhaps members of the student government) or administrators.
