  Writing and Creative Thinking                                          

Course Objectives

In this course, you will learn how to:

(1)     be more creative in generating ideas for writing,

(2)     write summaries and reports,

(3)     use concrete specific details in writing,

(4)     and write narrative stories and descriptive essays.

Course Requirements and Grades

       Nine assignments will be given during the semester. Both the e-version (to be sent to the class email address above) and the hard copy (to be handed in to me at the end of the class of the due date) of every exercise and essay assignment must be submitted to receive course credit. A late paper or exercise will be scored one letter grade lower and must be turned in within one week of the due date, or it will be recorded as a zero.
