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.
