From Word to Essay

Credits: 1

This course will look at the English language as a tool for exploring our place in the world. From word choice, through sentence design, paragraph building and, finally, essay writing, students will get to better understand how deliberate and concise language use helps us both form understandings and communicate with others. On one end, the class will cover structural grammar and at the other end will read and evaluate great nonfiction writing. Students will build and maintain a website for writing hints, good samples, and the publication of their work.
