Analysing other people's writing is a fantastic way to improve your own writing. In this class, students will look at how and why writers make certain word choices. They will learn how to pick out the important words with the biggest impact and practice writing analytical sentences exploring these choices. This is a great class to expand English reading and writing and will form a foundation to build further knowledge on.
