In this course, students explore and discuss the rhetorical effectiveness of stylistic elements commonly found in American academic writing. Through this exploration and discussion, students expand the repertoire of language structures and vocabulary items upon which to draw in composing their own academic writing. Additionally, this exploration and discussion of stylistic elements help students acquire effective self-editing strategies. Students apply these editing strategies to the papers they write for their First-Year Writing Requirement courses or another course that requires writing.
