English for Life and Work-Tue/Thu

Free

with Emily Nash, Ellsworth Adult Education

Calendar Jan 7, 2020 at 9 am, runs for 22 weeks

This is a self-paced course which can be taken for diploma credit, designed to help adults improve their writing and reading while preparing for college entrance exams, college classes, and the world of work. We will cover the basics of grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure, paragraph development, and will eventually write effective essays with clear ideas, smooth transitions, and logical support. We will practice pre-writing, planning, research, and organizing our writing. Learning to proofread for punctuation, usage, content and support will be emphasized. An aspect of the practice will be reading diverse materials and analyzing them for main ideas, supporting evidence, and the proper use of the mechanics of English, all while increasing digital literacy. Ongoing enrollment.

Please contact Ellsworth Adult Education at 664-7110 or adultedinfo@ellsworthschools.org to make an appointment with our student advisor before registering for this class.
