ELTA-051 Writing and Grammar-Level 5 Course Level: 500-LEVEL Course

Writing and Grammar-Level 5 (0) This course develops students' academic writing skills with a particular focus on how written academic essays can be used to develop a short research paper. Students build their essay writing skills, incorporating complex grammatical structures and using different rhetorical genres such as classification, definition, problem/solution, and compare/contrast to increase the sophistication of their writing. Students engage in all aspects of the writing process, including peer review workshops, and learn the value of feedback and revision. In addition, students analyze and address the typical grammatical trouble spots for non-native speakers with a particular focus on tone, hedging, and boosting. Throughout the course, students pay close attention to the norms of academic integrity and the issue of plagiarism as they research and document their work. Grading: A-F only.
