Summer Workshop: Grammar, Reading, and Writing

June 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Clauses and Phrases and Fragments, oh my!

Do you have grammar phobia?  Do you know your subjects from your predicates?  What is a dangling modifier?  Is English your second language? Can you finish a sentence with a preposition?  Where do you put that comma?  Is it “your” or “you’re”?  How important is grammar for reading and writing in English? Come and answer these questions and more at the LIFT summer workshop for basic grammar, reading, and writing.  The class is only available in the morning this summer.

Monday and Wednesday – 10am-12pm June 19th – August 30th
