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.

Immigration: from opportunity to exclusion? A Panel of activists, community leaders and scholars @ Antioch University Los Angeles, Room A1000
Feb 26 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

ImmigrationPanel_021914Inspired by U.S. Black History legacy, we will gather to reflect on lessons of empowerment and resistance learned from the civil rights movement and how these may apply to the case of immigration.

Discussion will focus on the intersections of immigration and key topics associated to social justice, such as education, social mobility, labor, and activism.  Experts will examine the civil rights movement from an historical perspective, and ponder where does immigration fit in as a 21st century civil rights issue. Examples of immigrant activism will include undocumented youth seeking higher education, youth immigrant workers involved in labor movements, artists standing up for immigrants dilemmas, and community leaders advocating for immigrant reform.

Confirmed experts include Cheka Abubakari, The Ladera Education Institute; Juan Francisco Martinez, PhD, Vice Provost, Center for the Study of Hispanic Church and Community, Fuller Theological Seminary; Edna Monroy, California Immigrant Youth Alliance; Connie Choi, Esq., Asian Americans Advancing Justice; and Ernesto Yerena, Los Angeles based artist.

Facilitated by Luis G. Pedraja, PhD, Provost, Vice-President of Academic Affairs, and Chair of the Diversity Committee

Sponsored by the Diversity Committee.   Free and open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served
