Grammar for Effective Writing

  • Online delivery
  • eClass

Cor­rect and ele­gant writ­ing depends upon con­sid­er­a­tions of genre, audi­ence, rhetoric, and sub­ject mat­ter, in addi­tion to knowl­edge of the writ­ing process (prewrit­ing, writ­ing, and rewrit­ing). This course will con­sid­er the role of gram­mar at all stages of the writ­ing process and how gram­mar changes in dif­fer­ent con­texts. Dis­cuss word choice, sen­tence craft, and how to avoid the most com­mon gram­mat­i­cal prob­lems. Prac­tice the gram­mat­i­cal rules by apply­ing them to your own writ­ing in exer­cis­es that will be cri­tiqued by the instruc­tor. Note: This course stress­es the process of learn­ing writ­ing in a hands-on approach. Only select­ed key prin­ci­ples of gram­mar will be dis­cussed and applied to your writing.
