Words of Wisdom

I grew up in the '40s and I heard all these great speeches, like Winston Churchill. His most famous, or infamous, commencement exercise speech was one that consisted of seven words. He stood before this graduating class and said: "Never, never, never, never give up."”

— Johnny Cash

This workshop begins by defining abstracts and their function in academic writing. We distinguish between informative and descriptive abstracts and show samples of each type. After we consider the writing process best used for writing abstracts, we conclude with a discussion of sample abstracts.
