Organization – will depend on the type of writing.
Voice – is the writer’s personal expression of ideas through the writing.
Word choice – means the right word for the precise meaning to be conveyed.
Sentence fluency – is about the way sentences are connected throughout the writing.
Conventions or the mechanics – relate to grammatical structures.
Things to bring in class: fully charged laptop, Gmail account, and printed copy or electronic document of essay questions, prompts, and requirements for personal statements.
