The Learning Center will be hosting short snack sessions geared towards helping students read, write and edit. These organic, interaction-based workshops last about 15 minutes and help students:

  • find reputable sources
  • quote sources effectively
  • organize a thesis-driven essay
  • format an essay using MLA
  • overcome writer’s block
  • self-edit their work using a checklist

“These workshops reinforce classroom instruction and serve as a helping hand for students struggling in one of these areas,” said Learning Center Director Erin Anglin. “These workshops are designed to help students in all writing-intensive courses, not just English.”
