CAEX 6000 - Graduate Writing: Evaluative and Persuasive Composition Skills


(3 cr.) This course is designed for students to enhance their ability to succeed in Walden’s writing-intensive courses and is recommended for those whose course instructors have encouraged them to enroll in a writing skills course. For graduate-level composition, students must be able to paraphrase, summarize, and evaluate peer-reviewed research while using graduate-level mechanics. This class provides a solid skills refresher to help students with clear and concise graduate-level composition tasks. Through prewriting, drafting, and revising, students will practice the written communication skills necessary to successfully compose course assignments, create discussion board posts, and write in a scholarly voice. Navigating peer-reviewed material, describing and evaluating primary research, and composing strong scholastic arguments take practice. Analyzing, synthesizing, interpreting, and evaluating primary research are the skills necessary to complete the capstone project, thesis, or dissertation. This course will provide students with the written communication tools necessary to complete longer writing projects that necessitate a persuasive academic voice. Note: This course is for quarter-based graduate (including master’s-level and doctoral level) students.
