Practical English Writing:
A Composition Course with Tim Newfields
This course focuses on writing short essays and multi-paragraph compositions.
Techniques for brainstorming, pre-writing, and re-visioning are taught as participants work
on various writing assignments. As well as examining frequent structural errors,
participants will learn more about rhetorical strategies and stylistic principles used in
essays, letters, resumes, and interviews.
This course is for English learners who already feel competent at writing basic sentences
and paragraphs, but need more practise with literary forms of 150 - 500 words in length.
Those wanting to focus more on the paragraph level should visit sites such as the
Exploring English Homepage.
We will be using materials created by previous students who have taken this course.
The material you create will also become part of the course.
Each week participants will be responsible for completing a writing project. Use the search engines below to
