Rhetoric: The Art of Argument
"Don't raise your voice, improve your argument." 
-Desmond Tutu

The ERWC course is an Expository Reading and Writing Course developed by the California State University (CSU) English Placement Test Committee. It is a rigorous, rhetorically based, college preparatory English course for high school seniors designed to support college-readiness in English. The objective of this ERWC course is to prepare you for the critical reading, writing, and thinking demands of both college and/or a career beyond high school. The course's 8 modules, which include a wide variety of expository texts and some literature, emphasize the in-depth study of expository, analytical, and argumentative reading and writing. The course meets college preparatory requirements for both the UC and the CSU.
