This course is to train high school students for both BECE and WASSCE.
English language as a subject in Ghana is becoming more challenging for students and teachers especially essay writing. Most students cannot identify and write points in an essay. Beside, most of the students cannot develop their points to answer the demand of essays.
Students and teachers cannot figure out how to write/teach essay types expected to appear in English language exams.This can cause deviation of questions and failing of the subject.
The solution is to design a course to aid students develop writing skills.The reason is that, we do not have many books that teach writing skills. Writing skills entail organization of paper (essay), expressing the contents of papers (essays) coherently and using paragraphing skills. These, am afraid are missing out totally from basic school textbooks which have translated into senior level and even tertiary level.Students are only taught the features of essays which do not allow them to develop their own writing skills. As students, we expect to write essays in our internal and external examinations, both language and non- language subjects. This course is to train the writing skills in both languages and non-languages subjects. Knowing the effective writing skills in writing can help students get skills that can earn them money as good writers.
It is my conviction that, any student that stays glued to this course will unearth his or her talents as a good writer.
