This semester, the University Learning Center is hosting a number of extraordinarily useful workshops, many with particular relevance to first-year writing students. For example, on March 2 at noon, Darcy Rothbard will discuss the elements of a strong argument and ways to support it throughout an essay. She’ll address the development of a thesis, the organization of your work, and other primary components of an essay. She invites you to bring current assignment topics or works-in-progress. On April 6 at 1p, Alexis Dianda will review the various stages associated with writing a research paper, from developing an angle for your paper to gathering sources to drafting and revising your work.
