A syllabus serves both the instructor who thus has a clear vision of the overall course and the students by laying out lecturers’ responsibilities by clarifying the elements to be taught and encouraging autonomous learning. Writing II is one of the courses that is offered to the second year students in the fourth semester at English Department of University of Muhammadiyah Malang to write paragraph.
