Event description
Critical Writing

About this event

The main goal of the workshop is to lay the groundwork for teaching students how to write significant papers that are built on, and permeated by, substantive critical thinking. The paper in question can be one specifically in a class on writing, but it can equally be one for a class in a field, discipline, or subject matter. A major part of this goal is to teach students to learn how to reason their way through the essential aspects of writing a critical paper. The workshop will follow the model in Gerald Nosich, Critical Writing: A Guide to Writing a Paper Using the Concepts and Processes of Critical Thinking (Rowman & Littlefield, forthcoming, March 2021).

In the sessions, participants will work through all the essential parts of writing a significant paper as a student would. These include:

- how to construct a thesis statement and the other main points that constitute the structure of the paper;

- how to make points clear—not just grammatically or stylistically but also how to clearly convey ideas to an audience;

- how to write the actual paragraphs that make up the body of the paper;

- how to engage in productive research in a planned, self-directed way;

- how to find weak points in the paper and address them fairmindedly;

- how to enhance and expand the paper using Socratic questioning.
