Primary Instructor:

This course focuses on the skills needed for writing academic papers. The course provides instruction and practice in the writing of a range of texts for academic purposes (e.g., extended definitions, introductions, descriptions of processes, and data commentaries). Students become aware of text-types and styles related to particular disciplines and develop skills and strategies to produce cohesive and coherent academic writing. In-class activities include individual and small-group writing tasks. Short papers are assigned each week and students are expected to rewrite in response to editing comments. Individual conferences with the instructor may also be scheduled.
