Students will learn how to examine cause-effect relationships in order to develop ideas for cause-effect academic papers.
EL19 course is designed to help further improve academic writing from feedback. Students will learn to analyze their own writing and to identify and correct errors. Students will work to improve the quality of their arguments so that they can produce well-organized academic texts that are clear from start to finish. Students will also learn how to write a problem-solution essay by using strategies on how to study a topic from different angles.
Students must attend at least 80% of the total 30 contact hours.
