I write for myself, for the web, and for everyone who gets me. I've been on a fasting liquid diet, traveled to Europe, and raised 2 kids. And I'm directionally challenged - I get lost a lot.

Skills Assesment Exam This Week: Review

Most of the questions on the test are covered in pages 1-42 of your Subjects and Strategies book:
  • Techniques to Get the Most out of your Reading
  • The Stages of Writing
  • Preliminary and Final Thesis Statements

I will also ask about introduction and conclusion techniques, and what goes into writing specific essay forms like narration, description, definition and so on.

Commas, fragments, and run-on sentences will also be covered. Bring paper and pen, and remember you are allowed to use one of your books or your notes for the exam.
