This course covers the following: essay structure, outlining skills, crafting structured paragraphs, essay focus, and tips for revision. It is a mix of both lecture and workshop, where you will share your writing with the instructor and with each other to receive feedback and guidance. By the end of the course, you will come away with a completed, college-level essay and most importantly the skills that will help you feel ready to take on your first college English course.
