I still have a few spots left in WRCT 135 – Writing about Research: US Style….This course is designed to prepare international students and non-native speakers of English to write about research in U.S. academia. Students will focus on the structure, cohesive devices, citation styles, and academic vocabulary commonly used in literature reviews, theoretical papers, and primary research studies. As a topic of common interest, example readings will focus on language research including statistical analyses of language learners; the civil rights of international students, multilingual landscapes, social media’s effect on language, and the advantages of being bilingual. Throughout this course, students will learn skills for organizing longer papers and practice the mechanics of good writing.
