ELIĀ 401. Academic Reading & Writing for the Graduate Student 1. 3 Hours.

This two-semester, multi-skill course, designed for non-native English speaking graduate students needing English language skill improvement, will focus on reading and writing skill development, with additional outcomes in improved grammar usage and vocabulary expansion. The course will emphasize academic reading skills and strategies and text analysis, using non-fiction academic texts in English, and it will also build academic vocabulary range through analyzing vocabulary contextualized in the readings. Then, students will use readings to practice various types of writing. Becoming fluent in the organizational structure of writing in the American academic setting will be emphasized, and grammar instruction will be addressed as needed. Students will practice all aspects of the writing process: generating ideas, drafting, revising, and editing.
