Language Arts and Skills
This course reinforces several related skills: reading, critical thinking, and writing. Students will examine sample essays, analyze them in terms of rhetorical strategies (methods of most effectively presenting an argument to an audience within a given context), and demonstrate these concepts in their own writing. Within this context, advanced grammatical concepts, punctuation, and sentence style will be emphasized. Logical idea development, organization, and style will also be emphasized.
