Decoding (Writing) Assignments

Tuesday, February 19
3:30 pm
Library Conference Room, #208

When you get a writing assignment, how do you know what your professors want? How do you know what kinds of language and format will work for that class (or job)? All writing occurs within contexts that include the values, knowledge, and beliefs of the people engaged in reading and writing it. Academic writing reflects the values, knowledge, and beliefs of the discipline (History, Biology, Art) within which it occurs. This workshop, presented by the College of Liberal Arts, will help you find out what your professors are expecting, and a few tips for success. Please bring writing prompts if you have them!
