ENGL 1009 First Year Writing Sem/English Language Learners (Fall: 3 )


Course Description

Designed for students whose first language is not English, this course aims to develop the writing skills necessary for success at Boston College. Students will gain practice in the writing of academic essays, focusing on a range of English rhetorical styles from narrative to research. The composition process from brainstorming, drafting, revision, and editing will be considered. Grammar is taught in the context of student-generated writing. This course may be taken in place of ENGL1010, First Year Writing Seminar, and fulfills the Writing Core requirement. Students place into this course based on the English placement exam taken in late August.
