English Essay Writing

 

General course description: This course is designed to sharpen students’ skills of writing five-paragraph essays for different audiences and purposes, primarily focusing on four principles of effective writing-unity, support, coherence, and sentence skills. Additionally, by emphasizing writing as a process, this course will help students cultivate the habit of using prewriting, revising, editing and proof-reading as strategies for any writing assignment. Critical thinking will be stressed throughout as students are required to develop their own thesis statements with logical support and recognize fallacies or irrelevant details in others’ writing. This course requires each student to do writing assignments (in-class and after class), participate in class discussions, review their peers’ works, do group presentations and hand in a final essay which is properly written and revised to address its writing purpose and targeted audience.  The core text for the course is the following:

 

  •  College Writing Skills with Readings (9th edition). Foreign Language Teaching and Research Press (2007).
