Written communication is one of the foundation requirements of the finance curriculum. The University of Rhode Island supports a recognized writing program that emphasizes writing as a process: In Professor Dash’s classes writing is not simply a way of communicating already formulated or preconceived thoughts.  Professor Dash teaching pedagogy emphasizes analytical applications along with the use of real-time and high-frequency financial data as a way of teaching students how to discover, explore and develop new ideas in a contemporary setting. On their way to completing a research presentation, students go through the recursive processes of researching, drafting, and revising; at all stages the production of a competitive assignment requires the student to engage in critical thinking.

Professor Dash’s classes are writing intensive.  As such, students are able to:

  • Analyze and synthesize topic content
  • Make reasoned, well-organized arguments with introduction, statement of hypothesis, supporting evidence and appropriate conclusions
  • Use credible evidence including real-time data
  • Produce writing that employs the organization techniques, formats and contemporary genres (print and digital)
  • Produce reports that demonstrate proficiency in standard American English, including correct grammar, syntax, sentence structure, word choice and punctuation
