Grammar in Context


REVISED

Winter 2015 quarter

Taught by

composition, education, literature

Standard written English has enough irregularities to make any careful writer or teacher nervous.  Given that it's impossible to memorize everything, what's a writer or teacher to do?  Which strategies for working on conventions of written English are most productive for you as a writer?  Which ones will engage any writers you find yourself working with?  This course is based on the premise that learning grammar happens best in the context of meaningful writing.  Expect to write, and think about writing, and develop both your grammatical vocabulary and your grammatical skills, all with the aim of becoming a more effective writer.  Class time will spent in workshops, and the on-line learning component will be used for trying out new strategies.  All writers welcome.
