English Composition II

Summer 2015 Online

Welcome everyone!

This summer online course in English composition will further develop your writing skills and strengthen your understanding of APA formatting.

Every day, we find the world further enveloped in media and communication. We text, blog, Facebook, Twitter, and Youtube; we listen to songs, write papers and emails, and watch movies and advertisements that either move us or repel us.

As a professional editor, I’ve worked with authors, publishers, students, educators, public speakers, and ministries around the world. Putting words and concepts together in a way that speaks directly to your reader is both challenging and an art. Writing offers you the opportunity to put yourself, your passions, and your knowledge into physical form. It can be a daunting task, but it can also open doors you never thought could be available to you.

As we explore the materials presented in this class, express our thoughts and ideas through discussion posts, and have the opportunity to write with intention through essays, I hope you find your voice growing stronger and the writing process flowing more easily. In this class, determination will pay off, and genuine effort will be noted and appreciated by your peers (and by me).

Please begin by downloading and thoroughly reading our Course Syllabus. Next, please stop by the Introductions forum and write something about yourself so we can get to know each other. When you've completed these steps, you'll be ready to go!

I look forward to watching your skills progress!
