Academic Writing and Tone

This workshop explains how to create a professional tone in your college assignments. We will discuss key points about understanding the required format of the work and how to maintain a professional tone through word choice and diction.


Drafting and Revising for Rhetorical Coherence: Beginning and Ending

This workshop covers drafting and revising for coherence between paragraphs, and links to topic sentences, itinerary statements         and conclusions.



This workshop examines types of evidence, how to find resources to use in research papers, and how to assess the quality and           usefulness of the resource.



This workshop recaps briefly information from the Evidence workshop, then moves to discuss analyzing evidence and integrating it     into a paper to achieve synthesis.
