In order to better serve the diverse community at Carleton University, Writing Services will be offering support sessions that review specific grammar points and discuss tips on how to effectively use and apply the grammar in academic writing contexts.

This program is facilitated by an experienced English as an Additional Language (EAL) instructor, who provides curated lessons focusing on:

  • Reviewing select grammar structures commonly used in academic writing
  • Identifying strategies to develop sentence variation
  • Exploring vocabulary development in academic contexts (Ex. AWL)
  • Practically applying grammar in writing with interactive exercises (Practice!)

Participants will be expected to use the information provided in the sessions in accordance with the writing style of their own academic disciplines.

Please note that Academic Writing for English Language Learners sessions are not eligible for the Incentive Program or the Learning and Writing Development Series.
