Course Overview

Grammar is not the problem! Attitude is! This seminar helps the administrator avoid the tics plaguing his or her memos, letters, and position papers–tics such as taking forever to get to the point at hand; using marathon sentences to say what could be said in a dash; mixing metaphors and misplacing modifiers; burying the antecedents of pronouns in the underbrush of prose; and masquerading behind the obscurity of the passive voice. Analysis of style and tone of writing.
