This writing with grammar course for non-native speakers of English is designed to support students who are co-enrolled in ENG101, English Composition I. It includes advanced academic level structures and their use in writing clearly focused, coherent, persuasive, and argumentative essay with a thesis, body and conclusion. Emphasis is placed on mastery of the steps of the writing process, incorporating advanced grammar and academic vocabulary, responding to advanced academic level readings using quotation, paraphrase and summary, and using self-correction strategies. It includes further development of critical thinking skills in English. This course requires work in a computer lab during class. Any student registered for this class will be co-registered in a linked ENG101. PLEASE NOTE: This course may carry graduation credit in some programs, but it is NOT usually transferable. Since it is a mandated course, students who do not meet the exit criteria of C or higher will be required to repeat ESL120 or ESL115.
