WRITING Lesson Examples

 

The Library’s Writing series is about good mechanics – sentence structure, nouns, verbs, adverbs, pronouns and more.  Even though today’s world has become one of “short messages and texts”, good writing is important in many business and working situations. Getting a good job may require showing a knoweldge of writing. Gaining advancement may rquire showing the ability to write with proficiency! Individuals who can write clearly, succinctly and with good grammar and structure will have many opportunities for success.  The Library’s Writing series can’t “test for creative writing and whether written mechanics are proper” – but it lays the groundwork through video, text, and exercises.  Bringing learners from young adult to adult writing levels of the 5th grade to that of high school and beyond is wht the Library is designed to do!
