Integrated modules review writing basics (parts of speech, sentence structures, grammar, punctuation); refine writing techniques (essay examinations, developing thesis, pre-writing, writing draft, making transitions, revising, editing, formatting, publishing to BlackBoard or professor); and research writing tools (interpreting syllabus, vocabulary builder, citations, style guides).
Designed to enhance essential writing skills of both English and International students, this course will incorporate self-assessment, personalized tool-kit, peer review, guided writing, reflection papers, and free writing.
Note: this course is technology driven. Students must know how to navigate Blackboard Learn; and are required to bring laptops, tablets, and smart phones to class.
