DOH1002F/S ~ Course Overview
Reading and writing practices in the academic environment are different from those encountered at most schools. In response to this, and the particular difficulties experienced by students for whom English is an additional language, this course provides a general orientation to language and learning practices and key concepts in the Humanities. It emphasises critical reading, note-taking strategies, essay writing and argument construction, textual analysis, and digital literacy. Classes are based on discussion in small groups and intensive writing activities on selected debates in the Humanities.
DOH1010S ~ Course Overview
This course aims to help students with reading texts and producing texts.  It will give students the tools to critically analyse texts – to identify the what, who and how of texts – and it will provide them with examples and frameworks to help them create texts themselves.  It will explain the principles of argumentation, and the meaning of ‘discourse’ and how these principles can help students who are working with texts in the Humanities.
