RE4006 English Composition

Instructor: Chad Larson

What first impression are you making through your writing? You can look and smell great, and have a gifted radio voice, but the high-tech information age we live in requires you to make first impressions and sell yourself in writing. These days, we make introductions by email, we tweet, and we write blogs. We craft web pages, we write commercial letters, and we sell ourselves on social media and in the marketplace. This course will help you to sharpen your written image by leading you through a review of the rules and practice in spelling, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation. You will also study the form and content of effective writing, including writing correct and varied sentences, as well as effective paragraphs.
