"Imitate! Writing with Models"

Thesis Statement

October 5, 2012 - 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm (already occurred)
Writing Center, Charles Pratt Hall, 101A

Think of a practical skill you have. Whether it’s making soup or swinging a bat, you’ve probably learned it by imitating someone else. It’s similar with academic writing: one of the best ways to learn it is by imitating others who do it well. In this series of workshops, taught by Writing Associate Magdalena Zapedowska, we will analyze and imitate model examples of various elements of the academic essay to learn strategies for a strong thesis statement, introduction, argument and dialogue with sources, as well as ways to achieve graceful style.
