Developing & Structuring Arguments (CAE Student Success Workshop)

Wed., November 12, 2014 at 5:00 PM
There is more to an argument than just stating an opinion: once you make a claim, you’ve got to support it. While every argument is different, there are some basic elements of argumentation that writers can use to compose persuasive discourse. Participants in this workshop will generate claims and reasons to support them. We’ll also consider the importance of counter arguments and see how they can be used to strengthen our own claims.

Revision and Editing (CAE Student Success Workshop)

Tue., December 02, 2014 at 5:00 PM
Few writers get it right the first time. Writing is thinking, and that means that as we write, our ideas develop and sometimes change entirely. Revision means adding, removing, and rearranging paragraphs and ideas, whereas editing involves relatively minor changes. In this workshop we will discuss and practice strategies for both.
