ESOL055M Advanced Academic Essay Writing and Vocabulary
with Sam Metivier
ESOL classes will be conducted via Zoom online meetings.
This advanced course is designed to facilitate the transition to college level reading and evidence-based writing. Students will use the process approach for writing a five-paragraph essay from primarily non-fiction texts, using the basic academic format (effective introduction with thesis, coherent body paragraphs supported by evidence, and conclusion.) Students will also improve their skills in reading and comprehension, grammar and mechanics, practicing a variety of verb and sentence structures necessary for college writing. This integrated reading and writing course will focus on annotation, summary, and critical response essay writing of at least 5 paragraphs.
