WCSS 6600 - Effective Essay Strategies


(3 cr.) Mastering skills in organization, citation, and writing is crucial to success in Walden’s online courses. In this course, students have an opportunity to improve their ability to complete research and writing projects. They do this by learning strategies to evaluate sources, conduct research, and use instructor feedback to improve grades. Students also focus on paraphrasing techniques, grammar refreshers, and the academic voice necessary to write at an appropriate level for the university. By assessing strategies and engaging in practical exercises, students gain research and writing skills necessary to complete longer papers common in many courses. The course is appropriate for all students hoping to improve their academic writing skills, including those students for whom English is not a first language.
