ESLN 412 - Academic ESL Writing | GEEC

This course focuses on academic inquiry and writing with an emphasis on American conventions for non-native speakers of English. Students utilize critical reading and thinking skills to engage in the process of writing researched essays.

Department Permission is required

Credit 3 hrs
Grade Mode Normal (A-F)

In ESLN 412, EMU students develop the foundation for writing, research and critical thinking strategies that they will use throughout their college careers and in the workplace. Writing is both a means of communication, and a tool for developing new ideas. Good writers are flexible. They know how to assess the expectations of a variety of audiences with whom they want to communicate and how to draw on or develop different writing strategies to meet those expectations. Good writers also understand that different kinds of writing have different conventions and they can move fluidly between those conventions. ESLN 412 students develop these strategies that are key to effective communication throughout the course. Students write between 50-70 pages of draft work and between 20-30 pages of polished, final-draft work during the course of the semester, and that work is supported and directed by frequent feedback from the instructor.
