MW HYBR 1:25 PM – 2:20 PM Service Learning

Whatever your passion, this class will teach you how to excite others about your interests. Fulfill your service-learning requirement as you learn about diverse local attractions and how to write materials that engage visitors. Parks, museums, nature centers, historical sites, zoos, and aquariums depend on interpretive writing to connect visitors emotionally and intellectually to a site’s conservation and preservation goals. In this class, you will study foundational theories of interpretation as well as analyze interpretive writing by visiting sites in our community and by virtually touring famous locations around the world. Most importantly, you will create your own interpretive projects, which could include wayside signs, exhibit labels, brochures, self-guided tours, public service announcements, websites, and scripts for interpretive guides.
