Fundamentals of Writing

The Fundamentals of Writing course encourages students to write in a variety of styles. The overarching goal of the course is for students to gain both experience and confidence in their written compositions so that they will continue to write precisely and creatively long after the course ends. Students will be able to write in various formats, including expository writing, journaling, short stories, poetry, lyrics and cooperative or group writing. Students will be expected to write about various topics, including their responses to the daily writing assignment, and in papers of varying lengths.
