Words of Wisdom

It's okay to disagree with the thoughts or opinions expressed by other people. That doesn't give you the right to deny any sense they might make. Nor does it give you a right to accuse someone of poorly expressing their beliefs just because you don't like what they are saying. Learn to recognize good writing when you read it, even if it means overcoming your pride and opening your mind beyond what is comfortable.

— Ashly Lorenzana

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.
