CTGV offers a classroom on reading, grammar, writing, and editing. The classroom is a Google Classroom that is a pilot program; this classroom will utilize Aesop Fable’s, a compilation of linguistic rules of convention, and self-expression. This program inspired by an inability to master grammar that forced me to create a literacy toolkit that acted as an editor for completing my thesis paper for undergrad. CTGV’s goal is to use the Literacy Basics Classroom as a resource for individuals seeking to improve their own literacy skills. CLICK THE LINK AND SIGN UP
