Beschreibung

Writing well in most English academic genres means arguing well. But what makes an effective, sophisticated argument? How do writers develop good arguments and evaluate their weak spots? How do writers communicate arguments to audiences convincingly?

We'll be guided by these questions as we explore argumentation in English academic writing and address key concerns students have about writing argumentatively, namely: developing a significant and original position, structuring thesis-based arguments, and integrating secondary materials. Over the course of the workshop, participants will analyze and evaluate exemplary student writing and will have the space to work on current writing projects.

The workshop will be conducted in English, will make use of English language materials, and will be led by a native English speaker (a U.S. American).

Inhalt

  • the dialogic nature of academic argumentation
  • basic structure and characteristics of academic argumentation
  • strategies for developing an argument, integrating and responding to the arguments of scholarly sources, and structuring an argument
  • common English academic genres and how they organize argumentation

Mitzubringen

Paper and something to write with.
