February 11, 2009
If you're a savvy student who knows that strong writing skills can boost your grades, employability, and confidence, here is some good news: the Spring 2009 Writing Across the Curriculum workshop series is resuming on Feb. 11.
Everyone knows that professors expect students to use sources effectively and ethically in academic papers. But do you know how to do so?
This workshop will give you a brief contextual history of plagiarism at universities, discuss the cause and effect of uses of plagiarism-detection software like turnitin.com, and teach you how to use sources well. You will learn how to paraphrase and correctly cite books, articles, web resources, and more; how to avoid plagiarism; and how to choose which style sheet to use and how to figure out documentation rules.
Bring your assignment sheet and/or work-in-progress to apply what you'll learn in this helpful session.
All sessions meet 4:30-6 p.m. in the Writing Center, Eddy Hall, Room 6 (except April 22, which meets in Eddy 2). The workshops are free and all members of the CSU community are welcome.
For more information, or to pre-register, visit the Writing Center.
