Find Your Way Through English Grammar

English grammar can feel as complex as a maze, but with the right guide, it doesn’t have to feel that way.

Prof. Thurston breaks the sentence down into understandable pieces so that students can see how the parts create a whole–it’s a bit like seeing a maze from above. Students learn how the sentence is put together and therefore where the punctuation goes and why some words can go in different locations with the sentence. It all becomes clear!

Take Grammar: Summer 1

Do you hate grammar? So did Prof. Thurston when he was in high school.

Now, he breaks down the intimidating and confusing rules of this important subject using a clear series of videos, lectures and exercises.

Not only will students learn many rules–such as how to use that pesky semicolon (;)–but also how to think of grammar in terms of power in their writing, using the rules of grammar to express their own meaning more clearly.

Ode to Semester’s End

Put your feet up in comfy, brown loafers
You’ve proved it! You’re students, not posers.
Exams, labs and projects,
Are gone, it’s all perfect!
Til next month when we start it all over!
