Course Overview

The primary goal of this course is to help high-school students acquire the attitudes and skills needed to meet the expectations and demands of academic writing in college. Academic writing requires students to read and think critically, recognizing the complexity of issues and ideas; to tolerate and welcome that complexity; and to be dissatisfied with simple solutions and simplistic writing. Ultimately, you will produce papers that reflect complexity with a clarity of thought that engages readers. Students will keep reading journals, participate in online group discussions, and complete short papers that reflect their understanding of the material and concepts.
