This course targets techniques and strategies needed to improve written communication. Students have the opportunity to develop a personal voice through the writing of fiction, nonfiction, and memoir. Students work on a series of specific assignments and exercises. Eventually, they pursue their own projects, sharing and critiquing each other’s efforts. This course serves two types of students: those who already excel at writing and those who wish to improve their writing style. Part of the course includes the daily use of computers to polish grammar and to address organization and fluency. The course culminates with a collection of edited compositions and essays that are compiled in a portfolio for each student to take home. This course is graded as pass/fail. Grades are not included in progress reports.
