ESL writers face unique challenges with academic writing, and faculty are also challenged in responding to their work. This session will begin with an overview of a few key theories that are pivotal in understanding the complexities of ESL writing. A hands-on exercise will be provided to help fuse these theories into practice. There will also be an opportunity for faculty to share dilemmas they have faced when evaluating the writing of ESL students.
Although most students understand the importance of a well-crafted thesis to a sound academic argument, many struggle to develop meaningful thesis statements and refine those statements during the writing process.

Grades, activities, and accomplishments are the "steak" of the graduate school application, while the personal statement is the "sizzle." Join us to learn techniques that can transform your personal statement from one among many to one among the chosen few!
