Course taught by Dr. William Spivey

The Writing Mechanics course teaches writing in an engaging way that helps students improve the quality of their writing by improving the quality of each sentence that goes into their writing. Your student will learn to “build” sentences that are more expressive and descriptive, which in turn will help them to better communicate their point in all of the writing they do.
