Description:(45 contact hours) Many people think that professional writers sit down with a piece of paper and write one perfect sentence after another until the final sentence is completed and the work is done. But that's not really how the professionals do it. They follow a process that takes them from finding a topic through editing and proofreading the piece. In this course, you'll develop a writing process that works for you. As you work through the study materials and writing exercises, you'll learn how to use effective revision strategies on essay drafts; how to write clearly, concisely, and descriptively; how to support a thesis statement; and how to apply rules of grammar, punctuation, and style. By the end, you'll be proficient at writing in a variety of modes and for a variety of audiences. This course includes all required textbooks and access to expert instructors who can be reached by phone or e-mail. Requirements: Microsoft Windows XP or 2000, Microsoft Office 2003 (Student and Teacher Edition, Standard Edition, Small Business Edition, or Professional Edition are all acceptable), Internet access, e-mail, the Macromedia Flash Player, the Macromedia Shockwave Player, Apple QuickTime, and the Internet Explorer, Netscape, or Firefox Web browser.
