• ### Unit 3: Focus, Cohesion, and Style

Style refers to the way in which you write a sentence and assemble it within a sequence of sentences. A sound writing style is not a luxury; it is a necessity if you intend to communicate your ideas clearly and effectively. You may write with perfect grammar, but if your style needs work, your audience may not understand what you are trying to say. While "style” is inherently subjective, this unit will provide you with some guidelines that are generally agreed upon by most academics. The goal of this unit will be to teach you to write as clearly, persuasively, and elegantly as possible.

Completing this unit should take you approximately 15 hours.
