Introduction

Mastering grammar will give you confidence in your speaking and writing of English. Furthermore, improving these skills will help you achieve your academic or professional goals. You learned a lot of important grammar in this specialization, and you want to make sure you will remember it. In this capstone, you will create a grammar scrapbook of difficult or interesting English grammatical structures--studied in the specialization--that you want to take with you. You will choose a multi-media tool of your choice, such as video or e-book, to showcase proper use of the grammar, and you will also give authentic examples of the grammar found in articles, movies, or songs to make the scrapbook interesting. Doing this project will help reinforce what you have learned in the past few months....
