The Mechanics of Writing

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

The study of effective English prose makes the sentence its principal focus. In this course, designed to meet the needs of beginning writers, we examine the sentence, looking at syntax, the parts of speech, and other aspects of grammar. Later we look ahead to considerations of effectiveness and style. Chapters from a grammar and style textbook are assigned. Students workshop short writing assignments weekly. They look at what is correct versus what is incorrect and when rules should be broken, how language changes, how context determines choices, and how these choices develop into a style. Note: Students for whom English is a foreign language should take the relevant English as a second language course instead of this course.
