Each text written in the course should clearly communicate a central idea or thesis, contain sufficient detail to be lively and convincing, reflect the voice of the writer and use carefully edited standard written English. By the end of the semester, students should have completed at least 20 pages (approximately 5,000 words) of revised and edited prose.
