||Cabello De Martinez|
Rhetoric and Composition advanced techniques are acquired through a broad range of professional fields including communications, social services, business, education, medicine, law, tourism, engineering and computer sciences. This course encourages students to actively explore key issues of the professional world with an emphasis in both academic writing and oral expression. Activities promote critical thinking about distinct disciplines in order to achieve formality in style and expression. Grammar is reviewed in a series of lessons but is not an active part of this course; you are expected to produce documents that are coherent and in the course of the semester work on stylistic elements in order to improve your communication--verbal and written- skills.
