Courses and Descriptions

COMM-1109Prof Writing Strategies & Process 1

This is the first of two courses designed to develop your writing skills through helping you understand English grammar and the process of writing, showing you how different forms of writing work, encouraging you to practice a variety of types of writing, and teaching you practical techniques for editing your own material.

This course’s work will have two main components: writing skills and an introduction to non-fiction writing. The first of these will focus on grammar, punctuation and word use. The second will focus on essay types and structure, with a discussion of how developing essay writing skills will help you become more effective as a technical communicator.

This course is self-contained but acts as a foundation for Professional Writing: Strategies and Process 2, which is concerned with applying the skills learned here to professional writing and editing in various forms.
