Based on the idea that effective writers are strong communicators in any context, this course prepares students for the writing they will need to do throughout their lives. The goal is to help students grow as writers and critical thinkers. Starting out with basic questions such as why we write and whom we write for, students will be required to write personal essays and eventually submit a research-based essay. In the process we will explore areas such as critical reading, analytical writing, argumentative essays, etc. One unit will also focus on creative writing in which students will be required to write a short story and analyze how fiction can act as a bridge between the personal essay and the research-based essay.
