Tuesday Workshops: Make Sense of Pesky English Grammar Rules @ Antioch University Los Angeles, Library A1005 | Culver City | California | United States

English grammar often seems arbitrary and mean, burdening students with unnecessary anxiety over writing their papers “correctly.” This workshop proposes to help students fill in some of the gaps, but will also help students see the method behind English madness.
Together, we will strive to take the pain out of understanding the choices we make when
writing in English–for academic purposes or otherwise–using methods proven to hone the ear and ease the spirit.

Tuesday Workshops: The Secrets of Incorporating Research While Not Losing Your Voice @ Antioch University Los Angeles, Library A1005
Feb 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Tuesday Workshops: The Secrets of Incorporating Research While Not Losing Your Voice @ Antioch University Los Angeles, Library A1005 | Culver City | California | United States

Many students, fearful of plagiarism, will drop in direct quotes rather than risk  paraphrasing or folding research into a paper in their own voice. This often results in awkward writing, poor transitions and the reader feeling as if the writer is hiding behind their quotes.

This workshop will demonstrate (with some hands on work), how to  paraphrase and transition effectively and include research while keeping the students voice intact.
