Mini-Term: College Writing Workshop

This workshop, at our MCC campus, will cover the fundamentals of expository writing in order to prepare students for college-level assignments. This will not be a lecture course; rather, students will engage in writing and editing exercises that will allow them to accumulate hands-on practice in each of the writing skills discussed. Students will learn to develop argumentative thesis statements that align with strong topic sentences, incorporate quotes and evidence smoothly and with sophistication, engage in a thorough outlining process that will eliminate "writer's block," and revise with attention to both concepts and mechanics. Students will leave the workshop with a new understanding of the practical, step-by-step process that can be used to write any college-level expository essay--and used to make writing a manageable, enjoyable experience!
