Paraphrasing can be hard to do effectively. Please join Carol Hayes, Director of the Writing Center, for a workshop to learn how to distinguish between responsible paraphrase and writing that is too close to the original source. We'll also practice specific strategies. Example sources will be provided, but if you have something you're working on--both your own attempt at paraphrase and the source it's based on--please bring it!
All sessions will be first-come, first served and are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Attendance requires no reservation.
This workshop is part of the Skills for Academic Success series which features practical, hands-on instruction in useful skills you may not learn in class. Other workshops in this Fall 2019 series are Around the World in One Hour, How to Talk with Your Professor & Speak Up in Class, Jumping into Grad School, Organizing Your College Life, The Ultimate Note-Taking Workshop, You've Got This: Succeeding After That Test Score.
