Composition II

Building on the skills learned in Composition I, students will begin with the formation of a quality thesis and its development in an argumentative essay, then the research report, and other forms of essay writing, with increasing emphasis on the development of style. Classes include presentation of lessons, frequent impromptu writing tasks and imitation exercises with immediate teacher feedback, and many opportunities to encourage fellow students and receive encouragement on assignments. Students will be trained to critique their own work and the work of their peers in class. Homework will average around 4 hours per week.
