Building general academic vocabulary and discipline-specific vocabulary is a significant element of the course and each student will complete an individual project which will help them expand the range of useful language for reading and writing in the academic context.

Formative assessment plays a significant role in the development of writing skills therefore, each student will receive feedback on their written work and will be asked to act upon it.

There are three components of the final grade:

1. Academic Vocabulary Project – 30%.

2. Final Essay and Annotated Bibliography– 50%.

3. Active participation in class and completing all tasks – 20%.
