Writing papers communicating information and opinion to develop accurate, competent, and effective expression.
For SUMMER 2007: This course will be a workshop for writers. My premise is that there is no better way to improve your writing than to write. Yes, reading helps, grammar helps, talk helps. Assignments and deadlines help. But you must write. I will provide most of the assignments and all of the deadlines. Iíll talk about writing and Iíll assign some reading from current newspapers and magazines along with some older material on Electronic Reserve. Iíll refer you to good sources for grammar and spelling. But you must write. And you will, at and for every meeting. Five weeks later, youíll be better writers.
