Space available in Spring quarter "C"/"W" courses linked with introductory lectures in the Social Sciences

IWP "writing links" -- the Interdisciplinary Writing Program's 5-credit composition courses linked to lectures across campus -- may be used toward either the "C" (composition) or the "W" (additional writing) requirements.
IWP composition courses base assignments on materials in the linked lecture, and students often find that taking a lecture + link pair deepens their learning and improves their performance in both classes. There are no prerequisites for IWP classes. (English 298 writing links are numbered at the 200 level because this matches the numbering of the linked lectures. Any student eligible to take the lecture is also welcome in the writing link.)

Below is a list of lecture/link pairs with space remaining for Spring quarter. Please share with students who might benefit from the opportunity to fulfill a variety of general education requirements in a supportive learning community.

English 198B (TuTh 1:00-2:20; C or W) is linked with 
HSTEU 113: History of Modern Europe (TuTh 10:30-12:20; I&S)

English 198G (TuTh 11:30-12:50; C or W) is linked with 
Psych 101D: Introduction to Psychology (M-F 1:30-2:20; I&S)

English 198H (TuTh 9:00-10:20; C or W) is for 
MULTILINGUAL STUDENTS (MLL/ELL) who are registered in either 
Psychology 101B (M-F 11:30-12:20; I&S) or 
Psychology 101D (M-F 1:30-2:20; I&S): Introduction to Psychology.

This "MLL Writing Link" has been created as a space for multilingual students that acknowledges their experience with multiple languages and supports their development of the linguistic and rhetorical strategies necessary to become independent student writers in an American university. It is not a language-learning course: instead, students will read challenging academic texts and compose texts in a variety of genres. This course is a community that, in addition to using Psychology 101 materials as a common text, will use our cultural and linguistic knowledge to advance our discussions. Contact the instructor for add codes and for more information:

English 298A (MW 10:30-12:20; C or W) is linked with 
English 491B (internship in a public school classroom). 
This is the Community Literacy Program,, one of UW's longest-running community-based service-learning programs. This program is unique in IWP in linking a writing course to an internship, rather than to a lecture. CLP offers students at any level of their work at UW an opportunity to explore Education or other careers working with children and youth, and to earn a "C" or "W" credit in a small, interactive learning community. English 491 may be counted toward field work or elective requirements for Education, Learning and Society minors, and provides school-based experience necessary for application to Teacher Education Programs. Contact the instructor for add codes and for more information:

English 298B (MWF 11:30-12:20; C or W) is linked with 
Political Science 201: Introduction to Political Theory (MWF 10:30-11:20; I&S)

English 298D (MWF 10:30-11:20) is linked with 
JSIS 201: The Making of the 21st Century (MWF 11:30-12:20; I&S)
