Recognizing Exemplary Student Writing: A Model for a Student Journal of Politics.
Barrios, Sharon; Weber, Lori M.
To allow student writing to reach a broader audience, in 1999 political science educators and students at California State University Chico (CSUC) began a student journal in which exemplary student writing on political themes could be published. The resulting journal, "Studium: The California State University, Chico Student Journal of Politics," provides a variety of benefits to students. This paper addresses the benefits of writing assignments and how a student journal can enhance these benefits. The paper describes the structure and design of a course that produces a student journal. It states that now, in its fourth year, "Studium" has formally become a new course offering in the Department of Political Science at CSUC and its staff and budget have also grown. (BT)
