Welcome to Writing 421
This course is designed to support students as they strive to meet the writing demands of academic-level high school courses and post-secondary study. Instruction is focused on the writing process (pre-writing,drafting, revising, editing, and publishing/sharing) and research process (topic selection, researching, note taking, planning, writing, and documenting sources). Practical strategies are explicitly taught and modelled to support each stage of the above processes. Extended practice with these strategies prepares students to approach any writing task with added confidence and expertise.
