The purpose of this course is to empower future
teachers with the ability to understand, use, and teach
standard American English grammar rules and employ
effective speaking techniques. We will also study and
practice writing efficacious sentences, paragraphs, and
essays as well as making various oral presentations. By
becoming proficient in these areas, future teachers will
know how to score student essays and deliver viable
1. Given assorted printed exercises, texts, and visuals, the student will implement standard American English grammar rules.

No frayed edges if you use spiral paper
In this class, you will receive numerous handouts from various
texts that I have used, so you may want to acquire a 2\u201d or larger
binder in order to keep track of the handouts. The majority of
the time you will turn in the worksheets for grading purposes
even if they are assigned for homework.

Kinds of Sentences,
Homework is due the following class meeting, or you will be
assessed a 50 point reduction for late work.
You may re-do up to 3 assignments for a higher grade (full
credit). However, if you opt to re-do an assignment, you must
turn in that amended assignment with graded original one within 2
class meetings. If re-do assignments are turned in 3 or more
class periods from original date, I will assess a 50 point
deduction. I do not accept assignments on the last day of class.
This action might not be possible to undo. Are you sure you want to continue?
