Graduate Grammar Refresher: Mini-Course Thu. Apr 4, 2019 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Graduate Writing

Thursdays from April 4th to 25th from 10-12 p.m. 

Each of the sessions in this course will build on the prior week's work. You will be automatically registered for all four (4) sessions by registering for this session. Attendance in all four sessions is mandatory.

Are your papers routinely returned to you full of track-changes comments and red type? Are you finding the acronym AWK or the phrase "comma splice" typed or written in the margins? Have you forgotten some of what you learned about English sentences in high school? If you answered YES to these questions, this short course is for you.

Over a series of four consecutive workshops, we will review the basics of English sentence structure, including different types of sentences, methods for connecting clauses and sentences, and rules governing punctuation. Each class builds on the previous class, so attendance throughout is mandatory. The focus will be on common student errors. This session is intended for Usask graduate students.

Please note the first session will be in Room G3 - ground floor of the Murray Library. The remaining 3 sessions will be in Room 102 on the first floor.
