Media Writing Fundamentals

Course Code: DCOM 1002

Academic Year: 2018-2019

This course emphasizes elements of the writing process and textual analysis in context. We will consider writing as a social act that occurs always within a particular context and analyze the choices available to writers in those contexts. The course develops essential communication skills in a multi-media context: textual analysis, critical thinking and clear writing, including correct grammar and punctuation. Students reflect on their own writing process and examine and practise strategies for thinking, planning, drafting, and revising.
