They all passed!
This fall I taught a writing course at Seminole State College in Florida. My students were of all ages and levels of ability, with one thing in common: the need to improve their writing skills.
We covered some basic grammar review, the structure of an essay, doing research for a project and how to cite in MLA format--the basics needed to master college-level writing assignments. It was fun and challenging to teach such a diverse group of students, finding ways to connect with each one individually.
Of the students who started the class and kept up with it all the way through, all passed the course. This makes me very happy indeed. What makes me most happy is the knowledge that my students have the tools to succeed in their college writing careers and beyond.
