focus of Advanced Writing 2 is to develop clear, well-structured academic argument in writing. Students will collaboratively analyze sample essays to understand the academic writing process. Other readings will be used throughout the class to provide sides of an argument to analyze in writing and class discussion. Students will then work to develop their own topic and thesis statements, outline and produce first drafts, and engage in the revision process. Relevant grammar, vocabulary, and writing structures will be taught in the context of the student’s writing.
