ESL 095 Writing Module

 

This advanced ESL writing course focuses on developing those expository writing skills necessary for students to succeed in English Composition I and mainstream academic courses. By highlighting the writing process, contrastive rhetoric and grammatical precision, the curriculum prepares students for conventional writing, as well as timed, high-stakes testing. The course includes aspects of subordination for improved clarity of ideas and stylistic variation in writing. Vocabulary development, facility with idiomatic expressions, and thematic coherence are stressed. Students learn to predict the grammatical errors they are likely to make when they write. In addition, students become familiar with argument and other rhetorical modes in the essay form to express their ideas written in edited American English. Admission to this course is based on the placement test scores or reassessment test scores.
