課程概述

MA Writing II Advanced Grammar & Writing I and II are designed to prepare graduate students rhetorically and linguistically for the kinds of academic writing they will be required to do during their MA program career. In the fall semester, AG&W I, students became familiar with academic culture, products, and writing expectations, and learned how to execute specific academic writing tasks and skills that are used for their other courses’ writing assignments and for their own research. In the spring semester, AG&W II, students will revisit those tasks and skills and apply them in more complex ways to larger writing projects like a project proposal. Time will also be spent on discussion of language difficulties, especially related to grammar and writing conventions. The class sessions will consist of lectures, group discussions, and activities focused on each session’s topic.
