Because this course is designed specifically for students in a university setting, the second unit will focus on academic writing. We will learn how to respond to an assignment or test question by using the "PWR-Writing" or "Power-Writing" Method (PWR: Pre-write, Write, Revise) while learning the ins and outs of building a solid thesis and supporting that thesis with evidence. The remaining units will focus on the minutiae of good writing practices from style to citation methodology.
Because the goal of this course is to improve your ability to write clear, grammatically-sound expository and persuasive prose, every unit will include a "Grammar Capsule,” focusing on a specific grammatical issue.
