Scholarly Writing and Argumentation in Land and Food Systems
Prof: Candice Rideout / Winter 2021

It was a pretty good class, Prof Rideout would usually just talk or invite speakers. Wouldn’t take it again because it’s an intro course and it was boring to me (sorry!)
There were discussion posts due almost every week but they were like 3 sentence long responses. Your mark mainly comes from the final project where you literally just create a poster with a slogan. Super easy class, I finished with a good grade and I would sleep in class.
Really nice teacher, a little too preppy for me (my class was in the mornings so yeah) but it did seem like she cared for her students.
You don’t have to try at all just make sure you submit the discussion posts before the deadline so you get those marks. Also try and get good group members for your project that actually does their work!

- helpful course that teaches how to write scholarly papers - the course went in baby steps so it was easier to adjust to university style writing - small class size (around 30 people)
- follow the KGQPIEPIE method properly - choose research articles you're actually interested in and can comment on (ex: as a student, you're probably more comfortable to propose changes to ubc's food system rather than on specific scientific research like enzymes affecting food)
