|Expository Writing/Honors||034B||2 Credits|
In this course students write in a range of essay formats. Students regularly read and comment upon one another’s work, then re-draft their work in light of comments from the teacher and one another. This close-contact with their readers is an opportunity for experimentation. The course has no textbook, but uses examples of short essays, both professional and by other students, to demonstrate writing techniques. Most classes will also use some form of reader’s journal, to encourage each student to ponder styles and strategies encountered in books they read on their own, and all students complete a multi-genre research project.
