Introduction

This course reviews the fundamentals of the five-paragraph essay before focusing on the four major types of essay writing: narrative, descriptive, expository and persuasive. Students will be given a new prompt each day that focuses on developing one of these types of essays, with an emphasis on expository and persuasive writing. Through edited essays and one-on-one feedback in-class, this course will give students space to practice a variety of essay types and develop their voice.
