Course Description

In this course, you will learn grammatical conventions such as integrating verb tenses, clauses, passive voice, and indirect speech; contextualized writing tasks from the format of the paragraph to the construction of five-paragraph essays with thesis statements, supporting details, and introductory and concluding paragraphs; and further application of organizing principles in a variety of forms of writing such as cause and effect, comparison and contrast, problem and solution, written summaries, and personal expression. You will use the writing process to integrate grammar, vocabulary, and rhetorical objectives in academic writing.

This course also focuses on: development of additional reading strategies, applied to both literature and informational text, with emphasis on identifying main ideas and supporting details, separating fact from opinion, outlining, predicting, identifying author’s purpose, describing characters and themes in modified selections of literature; development of vocabulary in theme-based contexts; listening for main ideas and organizing principles in academic lectures; and strategies for participation in group projects, discussions, and presentations. You will also have opportunities for extensive, individualized reading practice.
