Courses in "Advanced Conversation, Grammar and Composition" are catch-alls for a variety of language skills and are fed by a student population with differing levels of communicative competence and expectations. In such a heterogeneous setting, the process of essay-writing can serve as an integrating factor. The syllabus of an advanced composition class can effectively be structured around genre writing. Genre writing applies to a canon of essay formats, the lexical, stylistic, and organizational conventions of which are taught, setting recognizable standards.
