This project-based course is designed to support the academic development of Bridge students. While working on writing projects, the students will have the opportunities for: (1) active use of Saint Leo Campus and online resources for academic purposes, (2) further development of academic writing and research skills, and (3) engaging in guided reflection on their language acquisition process and academic skills development. They will also develop a course portfolio, compiling a collection of assignments from their Bridge and University Explorations courses and presenting these assignments to the instructor of the learning lab in the context of their overall academic and language progress.
This course serves as a supporting course for ENG 118; during the semester, grammar, punctuation, and language related points addressed in ENG 118 will be referenced and practiced.
