College Writing: Understanding Grammar Through Writing--The Ultimate Connection

These five comprehensive sessions are designed to help you to become a better writer and to view good grammar as essential to the creative process. Each week’s work builds upon the previous, providing a solid base upon which you develop writing that speaks to your audience in a clear and engaging way. Each class covers a different topic: How to Fall in Love (with the Sentence); Doing and Being: Verbs in Thought and Deed; Who’s Doing What to Whom: Working with Pronouns; Full Stop or Not: Punctuation as a Road Map; and Delighting the Reader: Creating an Online Journal. Acquire a better understanding of the connection between grammar and meaning, and use grammar and punctuation to help to formulate ideas and shape the reader experience.
