Welcome to

College Writing II





The purpose of this course is to help you strengthen your writing skills in ways which will help you prepare for success in all college courses which have a writing component. While you will be spending much of your time in this course mastering concepts of grammar and writing paragraphs and essays, this is not a grammar course. Rather, it is a writing course. You’ll be writing every day in this class, and often outside of class.




Much of the time you’ll be learning how to write college level paragraphs and essays by writing about subjects you find interesting and about things which matter in your life. Don’t be afraid to express yourself or share information about your unique world in your writings. Remember, you’re very important to me. I do want to know about whatever you want to share.



What you’ll gain from CWII:


In addition to writing daily, you’ll be gaining a more clear understanding of mechanics and grammar (where does a comma go? what’s a preposition, and why can’t I end my sentence in one?) for the next sixteen weeks. You’ll also be learning to write many styles of paragraphs and an essay—knowledge you can take with you throughout your college career. Think of this as time to gain knowledge which may put you head and shoulders above many other college students when it comes to writing. Many students claim they feel more confident about their success in future writing classes, and most claim that the knowledge learned through College Writing II has made a world of difference in their other courses. 


Remember that I’m always here to assist you. Let’s work together to make this the best semester you’ve had.   Good luck!
