Strong-Arming Your Sources: Using Research to Analyze and Build Arguments

We’ve heard it before: “This is a shorter paper so I’m not that worried about the research.” Don’t be deceived because in a shorter paper, the sources you choose matter even more and strong sources can make or break an argument. Bring your paper topic and research question for extra help identifying balanced research and finding sources that bolster your Op-Ed essay. 

  • Tue, Mar 11th, 6-7pm, SLC

Portfolio Revision Workshops

 Do any of these phrases sound familiar? “Add more unity.” “This is awkward.” “Pay more attention to your mechanics.” “Fix your citations.” “MLA style!” “Substantial revision needed.” How does any of this translate into good writing? Help decode these and other mystifying requests from your teachers or peers in order to tackle your essay revisions and create a polished and beautifully revised portfolio. Join tutors from the Writing Center and Undergraduate Services Librarian, Megan Stark, for any or all of these workshops designed to help you revise your specific essays. But only if you want to knock your teacher’s socks off.
