This is a writing course which emphasizes expository writing, argumentative writing, and critical reading of expository prose. It is meant to train students in clear thinking and reasoned support of ideas. Students will be given the opportunity to read models of good expository and argumentative prose and learn the techniques of good writing. These include choosing appropriate subjects, developing restricted, unified, and precise theses and presenting supporting evidence in a logical, lucid, and effective manner. To achieve this end, students write no fewer than six essays and read at least five works, two of which are book length.
