Welcome to Expository Writing I and II!


Course Description:

Expository Writing, a rigorous writing workshop course for college bound students, challenges students to develop their writing skills. Every student leaves prepared to generate ideas and to express these ideas in writing that is well-organized, focused, clear, effective and compelling. Students develop their skills while writing a series of essays, each of which demands a different intellectual skill (persuasion, classification, definition, etc.). A working knowledge of basic grammar is expected; mini-lessons address weaknesses as needed. Shared readings of sample texts frame discussion and provide exemplars. Class begins each day with word study. Preparation for the SAT and for other timed written exams is included.
