Fall 2015 Workshop Offerings


Highlighting & Annotating: Textbooks contain important information. This workshop will explain how you can use the format of a textbook to highlight and make margin notes, leading to greater retention.

Successful Study Skills: A successful student needs successful study skills relating to time management, organization and attitude. This workshop helps you access what is in your skills toolbox.

Out of the Text: Creating outlines, maps and summaries from your textbook reading engages your mind. This workshop offers methods to make the information your own.

Developing an Essay: When asked to write are you confused about how to proceed? Try this workshop to work on strategies of brainstorming, thesis, topic sentence, details, transitions and revisions.
