ESL 22 : Introduction to Composition for Speakers of Other Languages
Provides practice in writing clear, effective, well-developed compositions using various modes of development. Students follow a recursive writing process and consider topic, purpose, and audience as they write. They read from a variety of texts to generate ideas for essays and to learn effective methods of drafting, revising, editing, proofreading, and publishing their compositions. Students write essays that have clear ideas, adequate support, logical organization, and correct sentence structure. They learn the principles of expository writing and refine their language skills. Students become efficient readers, effective writers, and critical thinkers. Open only to non-native speakers of English and may be repeated. Together with ESL 21, this course serves as a bridge to ENG 100E. Students who register for ESL 22 must also register for ESL 21.
