The California State University Expository Reading and Writing Course
Please bring the following to class every day:
a book YOU want to read and a Mead-style composition notebook:
Bring your writing journals to class with you every day. The entire focus of this course is the practice of writing. You will be using your journals to take notes, brainstorm ideas for projects and writing assignments, generate classroom discussions, respond to short reading/writing assignments, and we will be writing ALL of our formal essays in stages during class. The journals will be collected and evaluated on a regular basis and many of the points available in the class will come from these small, daily writing activities.
