Academic Grammar and Writing for Multilingual Learners is a seminar-style workshop series offered by the Student Learning Commons (SLC) and has been carefully designed to help you succeed as a multilingual learner of English.
The workshop combines grammar for academic purposes, critical thinking, and academic writing for university. The main writing task is to produce a self-report (narrative) that stimulates participants to restructure their understanding of the nexus between language, culture, and identity. Students will complete reading, writing, and grammar tasks, all of which will be used to provide personalized feedback.
Open to undergraduate students only.
The required workbook for the course is the online version of Grammar for Academic Purposes 2 by Steve Marshall.
For the 2021 Summer term, this service will be provided virtually on Zoom.

Note: Students cannot receive Co-Curricular (CCR) credits for a workshop if the workshop is already being used to receive academic credit in a course.
