Writing Well (Academic Literacy Modules)

Modules Now Available!

Our modules are now (gradually) being made available.  During the 2018-19 academic year we will continue to develop modules, so please check back often.  As modules are completed, they will be hyperlinked in the sections below. 

  • Sections 1 through 3 address core concepts of grammar, mechanics, and composition.
  • Advanced Academic Literacy Modules provides guided development in writing and/or revising an article or paper.

Please click on the hyperlinked modules to gain access.  When you first access a module you will be prompted to create a username/account.  Please use your DSU email as your username (if you have one).  After creating your initial account you will be able to access all modules using the same login credentials.
