This course will introduce students to the formal conventions of writing in an academic context, such as structure and development of argumentation in an essay, incorporating research effectively, and adhering to MLA style. The course will also expose participants to the conventions of language use and allow them opportunities to practice those conventions through essays and targeted writing practice (e.g. summarizing, paraphrasing, and quoting) as well as evaluation of both peer writing and scholarly articles. Additional course work will guide students in their language development through activities focused on expanding higher register vocabulary, employing the the typical linguistic conventions of academic writing, and varying linguistic expression.
Students from the third term onwards: Please register by 28th September 2015 using the printed form you find at “Weitere Links” (see top of the page)
