Do you teach? Do your students write? Do they consistently struggle with the same problems in their writing? Maybe they have a hard time identifying their thesis statements. Maybe they're not sure how to provide effective peer feedback or what revision really entails. Maybe they are confident at exactly how to incorporate research into their drafts. We have a workshop for all these writing needs for any level of students. Invite the Writing Center to your class—we're trained to walk students through the concepts of the writing process. http://writing.ku.edu/class-workshop
