Making Your Point: The Persuasive Essay
Monday Mornings January 18 - February 8, 9:00 a.m. Eastern
After a number of fruitful meetings in Fall 2015 doing Writing Workshop for Great Books Essays, now available as a self-study on WizIQ, and then some low-key free online writing workshops on sentence and paragraph imitation, we have taken a break for the holidays. But now it's time to get back to a long-promised workshop series in thesis development.
Making Your Point: The Persuasive Essay (click that link, or find it later on the Online Meetings page of this site) is a free four-week workshop that will take students through brief lessons examining the nature of the essay and of persuasion, with some tools I have devised to help craft a successful thesis. And did you know that an essay with a strong thesis almost writes itself? Come join us and see how it works!
We will spend the first half hour of each meeting doing some fun and easygoing writing workshop activities, and the second half hour talking about whatever you like--my courses, your writing work for me or for other teachers, or whatever occurs to you. If you cannot attend the series, the recorded lessons SHOULD be available on WizIQ, and I will repackage the instructional materials for later availability.
If you have any questions, please ask them in the comments below, and I will be glad to help.
