* Description
The Cursus Scriptorum is the new Scholars Online writing program: designed to be as rigorous and comprehensive as possible, following an innovative individualized process, and taking the form of an academic game. The course is asynchronous, to allow students to proceed at their own pace and to allow those with crowded schedules to enroll. Teachers will be available online in "office hours" for immediate feedback if desired, but these sessions will be set up after the beginning of the year. See the course page above for more information.
* Meetings
Please contact instructor for information on how often the course will meet online in chat.
* Homework
Work is contained in units. Students can drill through these units as many times as need be, so largely speaking the workload is up to them.
* Prerequisites
None. Writers of all levels are accepted.
* Recommended background
No special background required.
* Instructor's Notes
Please check back once the instructor's website is completed.
