Section Information for Fall 2022

Whereas EAP 110 is a composition course that integrates language instruction with composition instruction, EAP 116 is a language and academic skills class that focuses on developing strong English language, critical thinking, and research skills employed by successful social science major students and professionals, in short, the academic habits of mind used when writing across various disciplines.

In addition to the continued development of the language skills focused on in EAP 110 (6 credits), we will work on developing inquisitive, exploratory, and scientific habits of mind as well as time and project management skills. The class is based on investigating a problem from a humanity and social science stance. Potential solutions to the problems will be developed in teams and presented by those teams in project reports and posters.

In the process of creating these presentation materials, you will apply the analytical reading and academic writing skills you developed last semester and continue to develop this term. Additionally, you will further develop your research and notetaking skills and continue to develop vocabulary and studentship skills. The collaborative nature of the project will require you to use interpersonal communication and problem-solving skills as well as collaborative use of technology and resources.

EAP 116 K01 is reserved for Patriot Plus Program students.
