GEDU 725 - Skills for Scholarly Writing (3)

This course is designed to assist doctoral students to learn a style for scholarly writing, including the dissertation. Dissertation writing requires a distinctive type of writing, an academic, scholarly approach that meets local conventions, in contrast to an "essayist," term paper method of writing or a popular periodical style. The tasks, activities, and discussions of this course will include attention to approaches to formal writing that retain clarity, logic and interest, applications of APA as appropriate to dissertation writing, and a review of common grammatical usage.
