In this course, students learn to write clear, organized academic essays. Students apply rhetorical modes, such as comparison/contrast, cause and effect, process, and descriptive narration to essay writing assignments. Grammar exercises are incorporated to give students an intensive review of the rules of English grammar. Assessments are based on writing assignments, homework, and grammar exercises. A short expository research paper is required as well, with a concentration on integrating academic sources into the paper.
