Effective Writing Workshop

November 21, 2015

In her two-part writing workshop (October 29th & November 12th, 2015), Dr. Alice Cassidy engaged participants in active learning and discussion.  Students learned about the importance of determining one’s audience and explicitly outlining thesis and development statements in their work.  They additionally gave and received peer-feedback on a current writing project.  In the second part of the workshop, after discussing peer-feedback on writing, participants formed groups to address key problems/concerns that had been anonymously submitted at the beginning of the workshop.  Issues discussed included: time management, how to get started on a writing project, and tailoring language and jargon to one’s audience.  Participants also completed a cubing activity, which encourages writers to view topics from different perspectives. Take-home materials provided further detail on the topics covered and links to online resources.
