COVID-19 UPDATE

Grammar Clinic is offered online through ZOOM. (Click on the link to access the Clinic). The class will be live but will be recorded for later viewing.

The Grammar Clinic offers a non-judgmental arena for learning with no tests, homework, or grades. It also creates a community of learners who come from across the college community – students at all levels, both credit, and continuing education/workforce development; staff, faculty, and administration. The workshops range from the elements of grammar, to the tools of grammar analysis, and rhetorical grammar.
