Course Title:Thesis Writing for ESOL Speakers
Course
Description:
An introduction to process writing within an academic discipline. Students will analyze the generic conventions of their field of study and understand the common pitfalls of writing for international, L2, or ESOL students. At the end of the semester, students will produce a large written work using their field’s conventions.
Athena Title:Thesis Writing for L2 Writers
Nontraditional Format:This version of the course will be taught as writing intensive, which means that the course will include substantial and ongoing writing assignments that a) relate clearly to course learning; b) teach the communication values of a discipline—for example, its practices of argument, evidence, credibility, and format; and c) prepare students for further writing in their academic work, in graduate school, and in professional life. The written assignments will result in a significant and diverse body of written work (the equivalent of 6000 words or 25 pages) and the instructor (and/or the teaching assistant assigned to the course) will be closely involved in student writing, providing opportunities for feedback and substantive revision.
