Prerequisites : Completion of JCCC placement requirements.

ENGL 098 is designed to give students a solid foundation in grammar and punctuation, helping students overcome obstacles in mechanics that have in the past interfered with their ability to communicate clearly.

Students in ENGL 098 will learn to view their writing within a rhetorical context of author, message, and audience. Clear, well-organized, well-developed, and mechanically sound foundational writing is the ultimate objective of Writing Strategies. This course is a prerequisite in a sequence of courses leading to ENGL 121. This course does not fulfill degree requirements.
