This course is designed for international and multilingual students to practice English academic and professional writing in a supportive environment. This course runs on a discussion and workshop format, in which students explore the rhetorical effectiveness of stylistic elements commonly found in American academic and professional writing. To achieve this goal, students will participate in an online core grammar program, practice fundamental editing strategies, read exemplary essays and discuss their stylistic features. In each class, students will work individually on editing exercises and collaboratively in stylistic discussions. Students will have a chance to bring their own essays and editing questions to workshops with their classmates and the instructor. Additionally, students will identify and practice styles of writing in different contexts, such as writing in science, business, and psychology.
