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



This workshop works particularly well before students embark on a research paper.

We suggest ways students might improve their academic essay writing by altering their writing process. Some attention is paid to the difference between topic and thesis, the need to read an assignment carefully, and the importance of analyzing an audience. When students have an assignment in hand, we can provide some interaction by discussing their assignment and audience.
