Building Your Argument: Strategies for Writing Stronger Papers

Has your professor or TA asked you to “strengthen,” “clarify,” or “organize” your arguments? Not sure what they want you to do? In this workshop, we will analyze the classic structure of argument-driven papers and talk about what makes this structure persuasive to academic readers. You’ll leave with a sharper understanding of what makes effective arguments and strategies for crafting your own. This workshop will be most useful for first- and second-year undergraduates writing for humanities and social science classes.

This workshop can be offered by request of a class or group.
