In this course, reading and writing have been organised around introductory concepts, skills and strategies that students need to develop in order to manage the academic language encountered in a university preparation course. Students perform a variety of tasks which require them to apply appropriate skills and strategies. Reading focuses on the process of reading, from previewing through to demonstrating a good working knowledge of the text. Writing also works through a process from brainstorming and organising ideas to writing first and final drafts.
