Description: A winner of the John S. Knight Assignment Sequence Prize, this sequence originates from Music 111, Sound, Sense, and Ideas: Beethoven and Today's Music. The sequence includes all the assignments for the course, each of which is accompanied by two short assignments (three paragraphs). The short assignments fulfill one or more of four principal functions: (1) to address one important issue or skill in writing, (2) to encourage closer and more critical engagement with the reading material, (3) to draw attention to the ways in which the reading material offers models for good writing, and (4) to introduce concepts or approaches relevant to the main essay. Materials include all the short and long assignments and the course calendar for the semester. 38 page pdf
