Welcome all PROW 100 students! I hope your new academic year is off to a great start and I wish you all the best for the coming term.

Today we will go over a few introductory issues. I'll tell you a bit about:

  • Attendance and E-mails
  • Introduction
  • Activity
  • Diagnostic (don't worry, this is for instructional purposes only)
  • Syllabus
  • Blog Expectations and How-To’s
  • Explanation of Blog Term Project
  • Parts of Speech Group Work
  • Homework


Eugenia Butler et al., Correct Writing, 6th edition (Lexington: DC Heath, 1997).

Gary Goshgarian, Exploring Language, 12th edition 
(New York: Longman, 2007).

I also recommend that you purchase a good-quality dictionary, such as the Canadian Oxford Dictionary or Gage Canadian Dictionary.
