Writing Introductions Workshop

Wednesday, April 15, 2015
12:00pm – 12:30pm

Storrs Campus
EC-1, Homer Babbidge Library

This workshop focuses on the introduction both as a piece of a paper or critical article—and as a stage in the writing process which allows writers to revise and reconsider their conclusions. This workshop will address when to write (and revise) your introduction and how to balance general statements with: details, commentary, and broader statements about the paper’s purpose or aims. We will examine introduction paragraphs and introduction sections from several sample papers from different fields, and students will be encouraged to draft outlines for their own introductions in-session. Come prepared to participate in discussion and interactive exercises. Undergraduates, graduate students, and non-native English speakers are all welcome.
