“This practical course takes students of all levels through the writing process: brainstorming, organizing ideas, drafting and revising, and publishing. Students at the lower levels focus on accuracy in forming sentences, organizing paragraphs, and including appropriate language. At the upper levels, students focus on different academic genres, developing their ideas in a variety of ways, and incorporating outside information to support their original ideas.”
