Making sure our writing flows and is easy to read
Building strong arguments to support our ideas
During our classes we will also:
Engage in exercises which encourage critical thinking
Look at what creativity is and how to tap into it
Work on English grammar and vocabulary as needed
Build a list of useful online and offline resources we can use in the future
