Excellence in Writing English Composition
9th - 12th grade
The introduction and practice of Excellence in Writing stylistic techniques (EIW) will be applied through several short writing assignments as well as two long essays; expository and persuasive argument. In addition, this course uses Lesha Myers’, “The Elegant Essay” to teach the form of essay writing, (basic structure/format, and organization) that supports all types of essays. At the end of this class, students should have a thorough knowledge of EIW techniques, as well as many advanced; (i.e. Thesis statement, essay organization using evidence, transitions, introductions, conclusions, quotation lead in’s, clincher starters, and citations).
Your student will need to use the library, internet, and other sources to develop an understanding of the subject and apply it to a weekly writing assignment. Students will need access to MS Word to e-mail their completed work to the instructor by the assigned due date. Completed assignments, turned in on time, are a requisite to receiving a final grade. An 8-page syllabus and course information packet will be distributed on the first day of class. Please let me know if you would like a copy e-mailed.
