Unit 2: Using Your Words
Unit 2 considers the impact and efficiency of words. Throughout this unit, we'll look at how to find and use the best word for a particular situation. When the most appropriate word is used in a sentence, the meaning of that sentence is more clear to the reader. In this unit, we'll review context clues, tone, and diction – and the ways these elements influence word use. Being able to identify correct word use ultimately helps us write and edit effectively.
Completing this unit should take you approximately 2 hours.
