This group is a place to allow access to materials I and others have developed for academic writing in pre-freshman English EFL/ESL composition courses.
This group is relatively inactive, but you can scan through and use any of the resources, which are occasionally updated. You could also bring a class of students here to use resources and have an email list to discuss them. Just write an introductory message to me, and I'll make you a moderator.
This is not a grammar course. The focus is on composing--constructing paragraphs and essays that meet academic expectations in English-medium college and university settings.
If you are a student, we hope you enjoy learning and participating! Please start at Files/Constructing the Paragraph.html. Let us know your self-test scores and we will help you move to the next level.
If you are a teacher, please click on "Join This Group" (link above). If you wish to bring your students here to use the activities and participate in discussion, please send one of the moderators a message and we'll help you. You may also like to join our teachers' group at AcWriting_Teachers.
Co-Moderators are Dr. Elizabeth Hanson-Smith (Sacramento, CA), Aiden Yeh (Kaohsiung, Taiwan), Buthaina Al Othman (Kuwait), Barbara Dieu (Brazil), Glenys Hanson (France), Dafne González (Venezuela), Thomas Blair (Thailand), Gladys Baya (Argentina), Leticia Esteves (Venezuela).
