The Importance of Good Writing
A note to my students at NSULA.
Many studies show that Good WRITING is one of the skills that employers are looking for in Public Relations students. If you don't believe me, look up the article by Marie Hardin in Public Relations Review, Vol. 30: 357-364.
Therefore, throughout this class I will be grading your work in part based on how well it is written. The things I will look most closely at are proper spellling, punctuation, and choice of words.
I'll let each of you retain your own personal writing style, but let's work together to make sure that all your assignments are well-written.
