Essay Writing II: Special Summer Session
Writing is an important tool in thinking because it helps students to understand the relationship between words and ideas. Writing helps us to structure our thoughts so that we can better share them, but it also helps us to understand them better ourselves so that we can reevaluate old ideas and make room for new ones. In this course, students will learn the elements of the correct, formal essay, including choosing powerful words, using correct grammar and punctuation, building strong sentences, and constructing coherent paragraphs.
