February 27- Composing the Literature Review
Almost all theses and thesis projects include a review of current research in the field in their first chapter. This Writing Center workshop will help to make the process of reviewing literature tangible and real and will also provide recommended guidelines for the form of a literature review.
March 20 - Form and Mechanics
In academic papers, the mechanics of your presentation is as important as the content itself. The Writing Center will help provide you with resources for understanding style, grammar, punctuation, and other mechanical elements of writing.
