1.5 credits; 8 weeks
In this 8-week course, students study effective writing processes to advance their scholarly writing skills. The course is designed to help prepare master’s and doctoral students for successful writing experiences at Walden, including writing-intensive coursework. In a supportive environment, students practice the core concepts of critical reading, prewriting, drafting, and revising and practice applying those concepts through discussions and a variety of assignments, including a final 1-page summary of a selected journal article. Students also complete an assessment of their skills and a personal plan for continued development of their scholarly writing.
