What Specific Writing Skill (or Issue) Do You Want to Improve?

Screen Shot 2016-05-01 at 1.33.24 PM.pngI purposely selected support for this practice from an entrepreneurial site as this mindset best represents our project-based learning spirit (#PBL). So as we focus on sharing what we learned and sharing it with our audiences, let’s also be mindful that we have an opportunity to help you improve your writing skills even more before you head off to your college. Take a reflective moment and decide what priorities you want me to help you improve. Here is the source for this image, and it lends excellent suggestions for how to improve: http://blog.entrepreneurthearts.com/2013/02/22/want-to-be-taken-seriously-become-a-better-writer/ To help you reflect on some other writing topics to consider, view this web page from a Stanford University site. https://undergrad.stanford.edu/tutoring-support/hume-center/resources/student-resources/grammar-resources-writers/top-twenty-errors-undergraduate-writing  Finally, I am always impressed with the way the Owl Purdue writing center web page organizes excellent information. Again, reflecting on how two of my above sources come from writing centers, know that you should be sure that you know where your future writing center is located within the first week of steeping foot on campus! https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/561/02/
