This subject will inculcate effective habits and patterns of academic study and successfully engage students in a comprehensive overview of faculty expectations in terms of academic work and in-class participation. The focus of the subject, therefore, is on developing English language and study skills required for developing the critical reading and thinking strategies that academic writing requires in university study. The students will be given guided practice structuring their essays to be reader-centric rather than for self expression. The need for citation and referencing will also be taught so as to acknowledge the work of others. Reading skills will be developed for the purpose of extracting relevant information from resources in order to produce informed essays of substance. Five skills will be built upon namely: essay writing; report writing; oral presentations; listening and note-taking; academic reading.
