This unit focuses on the development of critical reasoning and academic literacy with the aim of enhancing students' capacities to complete a broad range of assessment types at a progressively higher level while maintaining academic integrity. Students will learn to critically assess arguments in academic writing, to construct sound arguments, and to make effective grammatical choices to produce high quality oral and written work.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Define and critically evaluate an argument presented in a text;
2. Demonstrate and justify the selection and implementation of effective oral presentation strategies;
3. Demonstrate strategic use of grammatical resources to achieve coherence and cohesion in written work; and
4. Construct a critically informed argument in a piece of research-based writing that reflects academic integrity.
Three hours of lectures and/or interactive workshops on campus per week.
