Selling the Sizzle: Writing Effective Personal Statements

Wednesday, October 12th at 3:30pm in Library LL25

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!

For Faculty:

​​​​Prioriting Process in Writing Assignm​ent Design

​Thursday, October 20th at 12:00 in Library 249 (rsvp only)

​Process-driven writing promotes healthy student writing habits and produces better student writing. But how do we transform a product-oriented assignment into a process-oriented one?  Participants will leave this workshop with ideas for integrating the writing process into an assignment of their own.

Responding to Student Writing

​Tuesday, November 15th at 12:00 in Library 249 (rsvp only)

Receiving feedback during the drafting process impacts the quality of student writing and increases their investment in writing assignments.  Join us for a conversation about methods of responding that inspire students to think critically and revise more substantially.
