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
