This class introduces students to the major forms of writing they will encounter in their high school careers. These forms include: argumentative essays, comparative essays, descriptive essays, literary analysis essays, narrative essays, rhetorical analysis essays, and other forms of writing. Though not a grammar class, students will receive refreshers on grammar, punctuation, and usage as well as examining common errors found in high school writing. This will be a writing-intensive class to better prepare students for future high school writing classes.
