Words of Wisdom

A great outcry has been made lately, on every side, about the inability of the students admitted to Harvard College to write English clearly and correctly. The schools are to-day paying more attention to composition than they did twenty or thirty years ago; and yet, notwithstanding this increased study and practice, the writing of schoolboys has been growing steadily worse.

— "The English Question," Atlantic Monthly, May 1893

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.
