Words of Wisdom

We write for the same reason that we walk, talk, climb mountains or swim the oceans - because we can. We have some impulse within us that makes us want to explain ourselves to other human beings. That's why we paint, that's why we dare to love someone - because we have the impulse to explain who we are.

— Maya Angelou

Tackling collaborative writing projects can be among the most challenging of assignments for both students and their instructors. This workshop presents students with strategies for successfully preparing, developing, and completing writing with a group. It offers strategies such as a timeline, member roles, and a writing process.

If your students sit in their groups for the presentation, our presenters can give them time to assign roles, to make plans, and to otherwise prepare for their project during the workshop.
