Question Answered step-by-step review the most basic skills for good writing: subject-verb…  review the most basic skills for good writing: subject-verb agreement, creating complete sentences, avoiding run-on sentences. You will not receive ‘points’ for these assignments, nothing that will add total to your final grade. But unless these basic skills are mastered you will not write well, and that—more than ‘points’—will determine much of your grade and the value you receive from this class.Most likely you are already familiar with these skills from other English classes. Review them anyway. When you make a mistake in the writing assignments to follow, I will not ‘correct’ the mistake but point it out to you and refer to these worksheets where you can find the way to correct that mistake, and hopefully learn from it and not make the mistake again, though very likely you will make it again. In writing, like most things in life, we make the same mistakes over and over until we get it right.During the semester other worksheets will follow such as capital letters and the correct way to use an apostrophe. Not spending time with these worksheets will be like avoiding practice/rehearsal and still expect to do well in the game/performance (in your case, the writing assignments). Practice may not make perfect but it sure makes you better.Finally, you do not need to go to college or review writing worksheets to write well: many great writers have had less education than you have had. They learned to write by reading. Nothing will improve your writing more quickly (and, if the story/essay/book is good, enriching you) than reading, even a little each day.If you have any questions or uncertainties about these skills—you are not the only one with such questions/uncertainties—send a note in “Ask the Professor.”Indicate that you have reviewed these worksheets.Subject-Verb.docx  for extra help with subject-verb agreement:  Basic Principles of Subject-Verb Agrement.docx Complete Sentences.docxRun-on Sentences.docx    Arts & Humanities Writing ENG 1105 Share QuestionEmailCopy link Comments (0)
