INTRODUCTION TO ADVANCED ACADEMIC WRITING IN ENGLISH FOR MULTILINGUAL STUDENTS
This course will introduce multilingual students who have a good knowledge of academic essay format to those rhetorical and format-based skills necessary for advanced level writing in the disciplines. The course will discuss the reader-writer-message triangle as it applies to different writing forms within the academy. It is designed to help multilingual students develop the linguistic, rhetorical, and strategic competencies that they will need to succeed in advanced academic courses at the undergraduate level, and incorporates discussion of those issues that are culturally relevant to a Canadian academic community.
