Title:Intermediate Composition: Internationalizing Curriculum with Partner-based Language Practice and Assessment
Author(s):Blankenship, Richard
Subject(s):internationalizing curriculum
ESL partners
composition course
Abstract:This class explores the origins and development of the essay form in an academic context through the study of various historical and contemporary essays and asks students to apply this knowledge and experience to their own writing. Students will practice reading and writing different kinds of essays, explore the limits of the essay form, and practice and develop research skills. Additionally, students will become familiar with composing and revising techniques through a series of writing workshops. This class will also incorporate an aspect of internationalizing the curriculum based on a partnership with a class non-native English speaking students. Approximately once a month, students will meet with English Language Learners and participate in a writing and peer-review process. Students will write a culminating paper reflecting on the experience and informally share with classmates.
