Grammar and Usage

Grammar and Usage

Second Semester
 

This course begins with concentrated analysis of student problems -- paragraph development and organization, techniques for writing longer papers, and proper use of transitional devices, active voice, and parallel structure. I spend two weeks dealing with usage and formal writing. The papers that are written during the first semester will consist of a narrative essay (1-3 pages), a descriptive essay (2-4 pages) and an expository essay (1-2 pages). The persuasive essay (4-5 pages)will be due during the 3rd nine weeks. After the persuasive essay is turned in, students will spend time in the library researching a topic. This research turns into a 10-12 page paper that is due two weeks before the end of the year. During the entire year, students will also be writing one page narrative/descriptive essays for their autobiography.
