bring meaning and entertainment to their readers. Learners will also consider the
structure of a work as well as its themes and literary devices. Readings in this course

The types of writing in the course are varied and include writing arguments, analysis,
interpretations, evaluations, and even college application essays/letters. Writing is an
essential part of this course, and the writing instruction will include elements of style as
well as elements of precision and correctness. The writing students do in this course will
