Ling 115 Writing Workshop for Non-native Writers

Designed for writers whose first language is not English to develop their skills and confidence in writing for college. Focuses on the rhetorical structures of American College-level academic writing including essay structure, summaries, responses, and research writing. In addition, students work on grammar and sentence structure problems which occur more often in non-native writing and do peer editing and self-editing. Understanding complex assignments, synthesizing ideas, and strategies for test taking are also addressed.
