Academic Communication Essentials

This course builds on students' understanding of the correct conventions of writing in preparation for work place correspondence and/or continuing academic studies. This course emphasizes the study of the mechanics of writing through the editing/revising of written passages. The application of proper grammar, sentence structure, punctuation, and organization is demonstrated through the submission of students' written work. Concurrently, the course further enhances students' reading comprehension skills through an analysis of both the form and content of published written work. (e.g. paragraphs, articles, essays, and editorials etc.)
