Writing Roadmap

Talk Now & Writing Roadmap

The TalkNow! Program is a non-credit speaking course for Korean students participating in the exchange program through the Office of International Affairs. The course is 5 30-minute meetings designed to give students opportunities to express themselves more clearly about their opinions and practice for an interview. These meetings are with trained English-speaking tutors, who offer constructive feedback to help students gain confidence for their exchange programs.

The Writing Roadmap is a non-credit, self-paced essay writing program to guide students toward better basic university-level writing skills.

Using a step-by-step approach in combination with an online course and workbook, students receive feedback and facilitation from trained tutors in developing the necessary skills needed to write a complete essay.

The Writing Roadmap begins with a writing diagnostic to assess student levels and identify strengths and weaknesses. These are divided into three specific areas, including Essay Planning, Essay Structure, and Proofreading, each focusing on a number of elements to help tutors better target their feedback.

Students then begin the learning process, working with tutors over a period of several appointments that build toward a completed essay. These appointments instruct students on topic selection, thesis development, supporting information, and a conclusion among other essentials for writing a complete essay. Once all the requirements are met, students demonstrate their improved skills with a final essay.
