Reading Course Texts
The amount you have to read for all your courses can be overwhelming sometimes. This workshop will help you develop strategies for reading textbooks and articles efficiently, and for understanding what your assignments are asking you to do.
Using Texts in Your Writing
Gathering sources is only the first step. This workshop will help you read, and write about, your sources so they speak to each other — and to you.
Research & Writing for English 120
Finding a workable topic for your research paper in English 120 can be a challenge. This workshop will help you narrow your topic to make it more researchable and ask questions that are interesting, both to you and a wider audience.
Research & Writing about Literature
This workshop will help you work with different types of sources, with an emphasis on understanding and using critical analysis to develop ideas for a literature paper.
Research & Writing Across the Disciplines
Research means different things in different academic disciplines. This workshop will help you apply and adapt what you already know about the process of researching and developing a thesis or hypothesis to the requirements of different disciplines.
Citation & Documentation
This workshop will review ways of integrating sources into your writing, citing them in your text, and documenting them according to major academic styles, including MLA, APA and Chicago.
The Personal Statement
The personal statement for an application to graduate school or for a scholarship is one of the most important pieces of academic writing you will ever do. This workshop will help you use your academic writing skills to write a successful statement.
