Students resume the work of Writing the Essay I with activities that develop clear and forceful prose style through close reading and consistent writing and revision. Students are expected to learn research methods and produce at least one in-depth essay that requires library research.Each section of the course may focus on a specific discipline—such as literary criticism, psychology, or cultural studies—and its mode of essay writing (with reading and inquiry conducted at a higher level than in the previous semester).Writing the Essay 2 prepares students for the challenges of writing in a variety of concentrations since expectations often differ among the disciplines.
