Abstract or Summary
  • In 2005 faculty in the Northern Arizona University School of Forestry initiated a project to replace the required sophomore-level writing course taught by the English Department with a new course, “Writing in Forestry,” taught within the School. The goal of the course replacement was to improve students’ experience and competence with the types of writing emphasized in upper division forestry courses and by professional foresters. The School collaborated with PhD students from the Department of English, Applied Linguistics Program to develop and teach the new course. We explain the genesis, development, and curriculum of the course, which has been taught successfully for two years. We also demonstrate the use of corpus analysis to improve student vocabulary.
