Incorporating Research and Data into Nonfiction

Intermediate | During this course, students with experience in creative nonfiction will further explore the genre by reading work that incorporates research. Students will share work while discussing assigned texts (e.g., John McPhee, Amy Leach, Ta-Nehisi Coates). We will look at methods, resources, citations, and compelling ways to add quantitative data to stories. Students will produce several short essays culminating in a final longer piece of writing incorporating research.
