    Thursday, Nov. 15 | 12:45-1:45 p.m.
    Briggs 239

    Writing in the classroom often serves two purposes: It assists our students to better understand content discussed in class and it asks students to practice field-specific writing conventions. This workshop will explore hands-on exercises for both situations and will provide specific examples that combine both purposes.
