WHO ARE "THEY"? A PRESENTATION ON
BEING SPECIFIC AND PRONOUN-ANTECEDENT AGREEMENT
WHEN: Wednesday, October 17; 1:00 p.m.
WHERE: Webber Hall, 217
FACILITATOR: Ms. Nancy Francisco
This workshop is valuable for anyone who will be writing essays for any class. One of the most common errors in writing is not being specific and not having pronoun-antecedent agreement. Learn how to identify who “they” are.
PLEASE ENCOURAGE YOUR STUDENTS TO ATTEND THESE VERY USEFUL HOT TOPIC SESSIONS. If you would like to offer extra credit to students, they will be given an “extra credit ticket” as verification of their attendance to bring back to class.
