Here is the information on my upcoming online grammar class.
The class is a total of 1.5 CEU’s, divided up into six sessions of two and a half hours each. Each session has been prequalified for CEUs through NCRA. If you cannot attend a session and wish to receive CEUs, you may listen to the recording and write a detailed summary of the content and submit it to me.
The material will be available to all those registered for two weeks after the last session of the class.
Registration will open on April 1 and continue until 6:00 P.M. on Friday, May 2.
This class is open to anyone who wants to improve his/her grammar knowledge.
Good Grammar (Finally)
Description: Knowing how the language works makes everything about punctuating and turning out a transcript easier. There is no question that grammar is where it all begins. Has it been a while since you have had a basic grammar class? Or did you ever have one?
In this 15-hour class, we will look at
- Language elements (words, phrases, and clauses)
- Verbs (person, number, tense, mood, and voice) and verb usage
- Nouns and pronouns (how they function in the sentence, subject/verb agreement, pronoun case form) and usage
- Adjectives and adverbs (what they do and how they work) and common mistakes in their usage
- Connecting words (prepositions and conjunctions)
- Parts of speech
Could we have more fun in 15 hours? I think not. Join us for a chance to brush up on skills that may be long dead — a crucial class for every reporter, scopist, and proofreader.
