Students will learn exactly what it takes to write a strong essay and all of the pieces of the puzzle that seems so hard to understand in written communication. They will be instructed in how to 'hook' the reader, create a strong thesis statement, and follow an essay writing format

Learners will receive pdfs of all material needed and will need to come with material printed for class.

50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
