• Unit 1: Find the Errors! Fix the Errors!

    This unit is all about sentence-level concerns. We all want our writing to be clear and easy to read. If a reader struggles to understand the words we chose or the sentences we wrote, they will have even more difficulty following the ideas we present. Knowing how to find and correct grammatical errors will help improve the strength of your essay writing. Depending on the exam, you may be asked to identify and correct errors in sample passages.

    This unit identifies common grammar errors, explains the importance of syntax and sentence structure, and helps you build clarity in your writing. Additionally, we'll have our first test-taking strategy where we consider how the essay writing exam is organized and how we can best use our time during the actual exam.

    Completing this unit should take you approximately 3 hours.
