Strategies for Clarifying and Organizing Your Ideas Before You Write
September 18 @ 4:10 pm – 5:40 pm EDT
Workshop taught by Dr. Jane Freeman
This workshop is designed to help you clarify in your own mind the content and structure of your next proposal BEFORE you begin to write. Participants will be introduced to a range of strategies for organizing their ideas and will be encouraged to consider which strategy works best given their own learning style and timeline. Drawing on techniques from classical rhetoric for developing and organizing ideas, the workshop will introduce strategies to help students investigate and organize their ideas at both the pre-writing and mid-writing stages. While most examples will be drawn from proposals, the material covered will also be relevant to research papers and theses.
