Part II (thirty minutes needed). Next, do the following:
1. Post two questions you still have about grammar, punctuation, usage, citation, or anything else pertaining to English.
2. Next, respond substantively with grammar insights to at least three classmates and/or Prof. Davis. If you think your input is correct but arenâ€™t sure, just say so.
I canâ€™t emphasize enough the import and utility of these grammar exercises and this discussion. Why not become an expert?
Learning Outcomes: Demonstrate ability to apply critical thinking and analysis. Demonstrate information competency. Use effective communication and interpersonal skills.
