ESL 013 Writing I
Because students are at the initial stage of English writing, they first develop solid sentence structure and then move to paragraph writing. As students are introduced to the paragraph and the process of writing (brainstorming, preparing a first draft, revising, editing, and publishing the final product), they are also introduced to graphic organizers that help them organize their ideas for writing. Students learn and practice writing a paragraph with its different parts: a topic sentence, supporting details, and a concluding statement. Students learn the importance of good punctuation in writing. To enhance students’ writing, students learn the different spelling rules. This course will prepare students for the intermediate intensive English writing course.
