This course asks students to analyze and interpret fiction and nonfiction texts of varying complexity and genre.  They will demonstrate the ability to read and identify an author’s thesis, as well as write and defend a thesis of their own. They will identify and imitate stylistic devices found in published writing. They will write coherent arguments that signal a main idea and defend that idea with evidence.  They will gain an awareness of the proper grammatical conventions of writing, and revise and edit their own essays to adhere to those grammatical conventions.
