Class Description

Writing does not need to be the daunting, tortuous task so many students view it as. Whether due to gaps in their learning or the need of a review, this class will give students a simple, straight-forward approach to writing a solid essay. Beginning with a review of grammar and sentence structure, we will move on to well-written paragraphs and thesis statements. Utilizing the skills of outlines and rough drafts, the writing process will be taught in a thorough manner that makes sense and presents a “formula for writing.” Through online assessments, weekly writing assignments and in-class lectures and activities, by the end of class, students will gain a solid grasp of how to craft an organized, thorough essay that reflects their thoughts in a clear, concise manner. Students will be compiling and maintaining a binder throughout class that will serve as a reference both for this class and future writing endeavors.
