Academic Writing I: Day Workshop

This workshop addresses the various rhetorical modes necessary for effective academic writing, focusing on both rhetoric and composition. Using the PBL model (Problem Based Learning), we will focus on writing research-based papers in three stages: Prewriting, Writing, and Re-Writing; each stage of the writing process are weighed equally. We will learn how to properly write an academic paper by deconstruction; focusing on the following elements: Title, Keywords, Abstract, Introduction, Body, Conclusion, and References.
