EXPOS-UA 3 International Writing Workshop: Introduction
A preliminary course in college writing for undergraduates for whom English is another language. Permission to register for this course is based on NYU admissions criteria and EWP assessment of reading, writing, listening, and speaking proficiency. Cannot substitute for EXPOS-UA 4 or EXPOS-UA 9 . The course meets twice weekly for 150 minutes each session.
Provides preparation in reading, writing, listening and speaking for academic purposes while increasing fluency, sentence control, and confidence. Emphasizes pre-writing strategies (exploratory writing, outlining, reflective writing, paraphrase, synthesis, analysis) and provides practice in multi-modal presentation. Students learn to make us of inquiry, evidence, and the incorporation of texts as they read texts from various genres (journals, newspapers, books, visual and moving arts) and draft and revise essays of their own. Instructor feedback includes discussion of appropriate conventions in standard English grammar and style.
