Higher Ed offers writing skills class

Are you looking to improve your writing and communication 
skills?  Would you like to learn to write more clearly and effectively 
for work or school?  If so, this is the writing series for you!
Cook County Higher Education will offer The Write Way:  Tools to 
Improve your Writing Skills with instructor Melanie Steele.  The 
course consists of four two-hour sessions on Tuesdays from 4 to 6 p.m. 
at the North Shore Campus beginning Sept. 18.
The four different writing sessions will focus on organizing 
information for coherence and unity, expressing ideas clearly and 
effectively, proofreading and revising for content, and how to conduct 
research and analyze source material.  This writing series has been 
developed to help participants in their workplace or place of 
business, students, grant writers, and those looking to renew their 
writing and communication skills.
Steele has been a writing tutor for over 10 years, and ran the Writing 
Workshop at UMD in 2005-2006.  She taught First Year Experience and 
freshman composition classes at UMD from 2003 – 2005, and a variety of 
writing and technical classes at Confederation College utilizing 
traditional, video, and online platforms.  She continues to work with 
students as a mentor/tutor at Cook County Higher Education.
The fee for the writing series is $40 and is supported with a generous 
grant from the Lloyd K. Johnson Foundation.  For more information and
