Sobre o curso

This course will teach you how to use your written words to become more persuasive. You’ll learn creative ways to use syntax, effective techniques for telling stories, and a clever method for arranging a complex series of information. You’ll also get a chance to both professionalize your use of punctuation and add a bit of style and sophistication to how you craft everything from sentences to slogans. In addition, you’ll get access to a wide range of books and other resources you can use even after you finish the course. These include (1) the readings and exercises provided to the students who have taken the in-person version of this course at the University of Michigan and the University of Chicago; (2) two digital libraries of excellent writing from a diverse collection of journalists, scientists, novelists, poets, historians, and entrepreneurs; and (3) a monthly “Good Sentences” email. Social media has only accelerated the ways in which we all must learn to use our writing to connect, compete, and create—sometimes all at once. So join us for this first course in a four-part series and experience the many benefits, both personal and professional, of becoming “good with words.”...

It is an excellent course that offers deep insights into the importance of words, it's usage in professional writing, and the impact it makes. I've learnt a lot from the course. Thank you Coursera.

Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Excellent teaching and excellent material. Everyone can improve their professionalism by taking Professor Barry's writing on course, it's not just for lawyers.

The course is too slow. The material covered is often irrelevant. The illustrations are completely off and the message that the professor is trying to convey does not get through very easily. It is painful to follow.

I liked some of the terms/concepts I learned in this class. But overall, I felt it was less about writing and editing and more about the circumstances around doing them well.

Slides are a real mess. The class is unorganized and assumes that the student has previous knowledge on the subject. For instance, half of first few classe uses football examples. I am not american. I know nothing about football. On the next week, it starts discussing grammar and comma splits. The lecture never defines what a comma split is but ask us to identify one.

​course is too long, given too much reading material and there are too many discussion boxes and quiz, instructor use too many quotations of the writer to make it difficult and boring, you don’t get what are you getting, please make it simple and short so student like who’s the native language is not English can understand easily.

Personally, I appreciate the instructor's time and effort in these courses, but it is a waste of time and money for the content I expected.

The trainer is so annoying! He does not seem to talk but to shout all of the time!

Awful. This course appears to be a plug for the instructors book.
