R 1:30-4:30

What makes good writing?  We will explore voice, style, diction, research, point of view, form interviewing techniques, use of quotations -- in short, every element that is part of a well-written essay. Students will work in several nonfiction forms, including reviews, feature stories, personal essays, and op-ed pieces, and will analyze and evaluate each other's pieces as well as the work of journalists and authors appearing in current magazines and newspapers.  (See note at end of English 112 description.)
