We all know that daily writing is important to the development of writing skills and technique. But daily writing or journaling is also a useful life-long habit for students in high school, college, and into adulthood. Students in this course will develop and hone their individual writer's voice and style through daily journaling on a variety of topics. Students will be encouraged to try a variety of voices (humor, irony, inspirational) as well as use journaling as a way to explore the world and their connection to it. Comparisons will be drawn between journaling and the field of professional online blogging. The focus of this course is less reading and more writing. Daily journal entries are to be submitted at least 4 times per week.
