Carleton’s Centre for Student Academic Support (CSAS) would like to extend an invitation to ESL graduate students in the Faculty of Public Affairs and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences to participate in a writing group.

This program targets common writing problems experienced by ESL students in an effort to help you develop the skills you need to overcome these challenges. Sessions will be facilitated by an experienced ESL writing consultant and each week will aim to address one key challenge. Topics that will be covered include: writing strong introductions and conclusions; incorporating ideas into your writing; paraphrasing and using direct quotes; writing effective transitions; how to speed up the writing process and how to edit your own writing

The group will meet in 503 MacOdrum Library once a week for 6 consecutive weeks beginning Friday, March 13, 2020, and it is asked that you commit to attending all 6 sessions if you decide to register. Participation in the group is free, however there is limited space that will be reserved for the first 8 registrants.

With the end of the term quickly approaching, you can take this opportunity to work on your assignments and receive targeted support and feedback to help you become a more effective writer!

Please contact Alyssa MacDougall at alyssamacdougall@cunet.carleton.ca to register and secure your spot.

We're here to help you succeed!
