The goal of this course is to continue to prepare students for English composition and other academic writing at the college level. It focuses on developing writing skills at the essay level. Students will move from writing structured paragraphs to organizing, drafting, and revising complete essays. Course content includes introduction to patterns of essay organization such as the comparison and contrast, cause and effect, and process analysis. Grammar and complex sentence structures will be reviewed as needed. The three institutional credits awarded for this course do not count toward graduation requirements but are calculated into GPA. Prerequisite: ESOL 101C Basic Writing with a grade of “C” or better, or permission of the ESOL Department Chair of Cross-Cultural Education as determined using multiple measures.
