Writing Workshops for Students

ARHS Staff will be offering a series of writing workshops for students after school beginning next Tuesday, February 12th, and running every second Tuesday of the month through April. We’re tackling some of the most common reasons students come to the Writing Center and/or the Library for help with essay writing.

Here’s what they’re covering:

  • Tuesday 2/12 @ 2:30-3:00 – Research Questions: What makes a strong research question? Students will practice breaking down complex research questions into smaller strong research questions, writing their own research questions, and make an inquiry plan for research projects.
  • Tuesday 3/12  @ 2:30-3:00 – Starting from Sources: Building a good academic paper starts with finding the right sources, taking detailed notes, and managing citations. Students will practice evaluating resources for relevancy and identifying key ideas for note taking.
  • Tuesday 4/9  @ 2:30-3:00 – Thesis Statements: For our third workshop, we’ll be looking at how to organize a paper around a strong thesis statement.

All workshops will take place in the library; students are welcome at all three or to just drop into one.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out to lewisa@arps.org or stockere@arps.org.
