Participants learn how to read challenging texts and write about them clearly and coherently, assess and think critically about their own writing, and improve writing skills through in-class exercises, homework, and revisions. Readings for the course are taken from several disciplines, including literature, history, journalism, and social sciences.
This course enables students to identify their strengths and weaknesses in writing and to improve their skills through individual and group work. The course includes asynchronous work, which students are expected to complete between class sessions. By the end of the course, students will have become not only better writers but also better and clearer thinkers.
