Multilingual (ESL) Writing Studios for Spring 2011

Are you a non-native speaker of English who is looking for additional support in your writing course? If so, these new studio courses offered by the Academic English Program and the Expository Writing Program might be just what you are looking for!

If you will be taking a writing course (like English 111, 121, 131, or 197/8) and would like additional ESL support, please consider signing up for General Studies 391F or 391G, 2-credit (C/NC) studio courses that meet two days a week for 50 minutes. These studio coursers are designed to support English language learners who are concurrently enrolled in a writing course and want to continue developing their ability to understand and produce academic writing. In the studios you will build advanced vocabulary skills, focus on reading skills to help you comprehend and analyze complex texts (specifically those from your writing class), and review and analyze grammar structures, focusing on how they apply to organization and produce different effects in academic writing.

There will be two sections of GEN ST 391 offered this Spring: 391F from 10:30-11:20 TTH and 391G from 12:30-1:20 TTH. For general course information, please contact Ethan Anderson at lalata@u.washington.edu.

You can enroll in GEN ST 391 F or G directly; there are no add codes required; enrollment capped at 10 students per section and is restricted to students in composition (“C”) courses.
