Writing is critical for learning and a vital tool for communication. Effective teachers of writing gain insight from their own writing experiences and also that of their peers. English grammar provides many challenges for writers as they move from early drafts to finished pieces of writing. Decades of research suggest that teaching grammar in isolation has little, if any, effect on student writing.

In this course we will explore English grammar in the context of our own writing, including issues of style, punctuation, and mechanics. Through the process of addressing grammar in our own writing, we will develop strategies to support student writers in the classroom.

Even though this course is especially suited for educators and undergraduate students interested in education, all writers interested in developing and polishing their writing are welcome.
