This course is designed to help adults improve their reading, writing, proofreading, editing, and revising to prepare for college entrance exams and the general expectations of college English. We will cover the basics of grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, paragraph development, and will eventually write effective essays with clear ideas, smooth transitions, and logical support. We will practice planning, research, prewriting, and organizing our writing. We will learn to write different types of essays, to properly format them, and to cite sources. Learning to proofread for punctuation, usage, content, and support will be emphasized.
