FIRE 5

Students in this course will study and be able to demonstrate the application of communication strategies to express ideas in clear, correct, and effective written form. To achieve this end, instruction and practice will include judging and writing grammatically correct and correctly punctuated sentences, constructing appropriately developed paragraphs, and structuring and effectively expressing college essays. Reading and vocabulary study will be used as a basis for improving written expression. Students will also review grammar, proofreading/revision processes, and strategies for answering essay-type questions. Computers will be available to students as often as possible to allow practice in composition and the use of computer program features designed to facilitate editing.
