EXD 330-9 Writing From Experience

1 Hour Communication Skills

Instructor: Dr. Alice Parker

Purpose

This contract assumes students are competent writers and merely need to "brush up" on syntax, paragraph development, and thematic patterning. Students' writing is evaluated for skill development, improvement in mechanical and analytical skills, and technical and conceptual maturity.

Learning Objectives

  1. I will work on the mechanics of syntax (sentence organization), paragraph development, and thematic patterning.
  2. I will learn to develop a point of view and learn how to express it.
  3. I will learn techniques of exposition appropriate to a short research essay. *Each writing assignment must be evaluated and returned before the next is undertaken.
