Evaluation of this unit and the growth of the students in the course will be based on pre- and post-tests of grammar, punctuation, spelling, and proofreading. Each individual assignment wi11 be evaluated for spelling, grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, word usage, courtesy, clearness, completeness, conciseness, and correctness.
The above activities all require that the students already have basic writing skills and can write clearly and effectively. However, not all students that come into a word processing class have these skills. Therefore, I will use the business letter both to teach writing skills and word processing skills simultaneously.
