Writing Lab Workshop Feb. 5-7

The Writing Lab at Santa Fe College is conducting a series of grammar and writing workshops this semester. Open to students, staff, and faculty, each hour-long session walks participants through general concepts that they can practice through small-group or individual activities. The Writing Lab will supply notes and worksheets. These workshops will take place in the Writing Lab in G-006.

This week

Thesis Statements and Topic Sentences

Strong writers carefully organize the ideas they want to share with their readers. This week, our workshop will focus on thesis statements and topic sentences, two structures that help writers organize essays and paragraphs. After discussing the relationship between strong thesis statements and topic sentences, we will practice generating both of these on a variety of topics. Participants can bring in essays and explore the effectiveness of these structures in their own writing.
