1-3 variable lectures per week; 1-3 Variable hrs credit
This course builds written communication skills for students who speak English as an additional language. Students learn to identify and write complex, grammatically correct sentences and paragraphs within the context of college level composition. Students will identify their individual challenges and build confidence and fluency. Students are provided opportunities to edit drafts, engage in peer review and refine knowledge of morphology, syntax, semantics, and academic vocabulary. This course offers students a safe, supportive space to reflect upon, discuss and develop strategies to overcome common challenges that most international and ESL/EAL experience. This is a variable 1-3 credit course and students will have the opportunity to work on assignments for other classes at Prairie State College.
