Undergraduates can sign-up below for these research-focused Fall writing workshops offered by the Student Learning Center —
This workshop aims to get you started on your research project. We will cover faculty expectations of research at Cal, walk through the general structure of a research paper, and explore the resources available to student researchers on campus.
This workshop offers strategies for bringing your research project into sharper focus. We will discuss qualities of a feasible research project, and explore elements of an intellectually significant research question.
Engaging with primary and secondary sources is integral to the research process. It informs your scholarly voice, shapes the direction of your research, and strengthens your claim. This workshop provides you with concrete strategies for analyzing and making meaning of your sources.
This workshop is designed to get your writing juices flowing. We will cover strategies for transforming your findings and observations into a coherent, well-supported, and well-written research paper.
Now that you have turned in your research proposal, carefully analyzed your primary and secondary sources, and produced a draft of your research paper, you could benefit from a discerning reader to help you strengthen your work. Our hands-on workshop will provide you with concrete strategies for becoming your own discerning reader.
