CONTENT
Are you dreading an upcoming final exam in one of your classes? Are you preparing to take a standardized test in English, such as the GRE or TOEFL? In this 2-part workshop, we will discuss how to read an essay prompt and strategies to produce answers that both answer the question and highlight your own language skills. We will cover outlines, structures, information flow, vocabulary choices, and linking your answers back to the prompt. There are many paths to an excellent essay response, and we will help you find yours. This workshop will offer opportunities for practice and feedback. Follow-up and additional feedback will be provided in the Language Clinic.

Bachelor’s and master’s students
