Summary

A graduate course on research and technical writing, intended for international students planning to publish papers in English-language journals and present their work at English-language conferences, is described. The course curriculum includes: (1) development of summarizing and paraphrasing skills, in order to provide students with the ability to recontextualize others' work, using oral summaries of textbook material and interactive note-taking techniques; (2) information on which journals might publish student works at various points (this is done by using coordinated writing assignments that analyze journals from different perspectives, including audience expectation) in their careers; (3) instruction in writing grant proposals and doing research projects; (4) preparation for writing essay exams, through practice with impromptu in-class essays with peer editing and class discussion; and (5) participation in weekly conferences. Guidelines for notetaking, essay and term paper writing, peer editing, and impromptu writing are included. Issues addressed in the implementation of the course are discussed briefly, including the question of whether American and international students should be mixed in advanced level classes, how to get shy students to participate actively, and how the instructor compensates for lack of subject-area knowledge about student writing topics.
