Section 2: Academic Writing

We all can benefit from writing effectively, particularly while in college and the workplace.  In this class, students learn essential elements of effective academic writing:

• argumentation
• organization
• feedback & revision

Students develop these academic writing skills through engaging in the writing process, reading content and model writing, and receiving substantial feedback from the instructor and peers.  Students also learn self-editing techniques and receive individualized feedback on their language and style such as word choice, sentence structure and coherence.

Note: This course does not require students to be in the Berkeley-area during the course. Students with internet access may enroll and participate in the course wherever suits them.
