Description

Grammar and spelling rules may not always sound like fun, but when they’re violated they can create absurdly silly sentences. In this class, students will get a head start toward school-year writing skills by examining the coming year’s fundamental writing skills from a summer fun point of view with activities like Mad Libs and the literal--and often comical--reading of misplaced modifiers and punctuation.
