This course aims at strengthening students’ writing skills for narrative,

descriptive, expository and argumentative writing. The focus is on the process of writing such as planning

(selecting a topic, writing effective thesis statements, finding a style suitable to a particular audience),

organizing ideas in outlines, writing first drafts, editing, and rewriting to produce acceptable essays.

Furthermore, argumentative writing skills will be reinforced through in-class debates which require in-

depth research techniques and use of the APA style of documentation.
