Writing Thesis Statements (CAE Student Success Workshop)

Tue., September 30, 2014 at 5:00 PM
Every writing task involves a purpose and an audience, so writers must start by asking themselves some specific questions. Why am I writing? What is the main point I’m trying to get across to my reader? Who is my reader, my audience? The answers to these questions help writers to generate focused and relevant thesis statements. In this workshop we’ll review the components of an effective thesis statement, and you’ll create at least one of your own. Participants should feel free to bring papers which they are currently drafting.
