Description: High School Prep Writing prepares students for writing essays expected in the high school classroom. The class will focus on expository writing, specifically paragraph construction building to essay writing.  To this end, students will develop their writing process; learn how to use concrete evidence to support arguments; study powerful syntax through model sentences; begin their study of Aristotelian appeals (logos, ethos, and pathos) as methods of persuasion; review grammar and punctuation rules to become precise writers and adept editors; become aware of an audience; learn about tone and voice; and practice many other skills necessary to developing writers.  Students will have weekly writing and grammar assignments of varying length.  Students should expect 2-4 hours of homework per week.  English credit available for freshmen – contact instructor.
