概要
This course introduces students to the basic writing concepts for creating effective paragraphs. Over the course of the semester, using a gradualist approach, students will learn about the components used in paragraph writing, strategies for crafting content, and criteria for reviewing the work of other students.
到達目標
By the end of this course, students should:

1. Understand the basic components of the paragraph.
2. Be able to construct paragraphs on a variety of topics.
3. Be capable of peer-reviewing.
履修上の注意
As this class will require students to write about a variety of topics, a great deal of creative effort will be required. Because a large portion of the writings will be completed independently, students will find that class time is not sufficient for all exercises and assignments.

It is important that students attend the first class to receive important information and instruction about the content of the course.

について
