The Quinmester course "Expository Writing" is designed to help students develop competence in writing topic sentences and expository paragraphs incorporating the methods of cause and effect, comparison and contrast, illustration or example. The process of composition is taught in the following sequence: identification of the audience; knowledge of the purpose for writing; selection of a subject; compilation of the aspects of the subject; isolation of paramount ideas for development into paragraphs; and arrangement of these ideas logically rather than by time or space. Following the actual writing of a composition the student is taught to review it to determine the extent to which it meets the demands of unity, coherence, and emphasis, and also correctness and effectiveness. Six pages of resource materials are listed in this course outline. (CL)
