ARE YOU A “GRAMMARPHOBE”? FEAR NOT: HELP IS HERE!:
Oct. 25, Tues., 3-4pm, Fleming 170
The problem that most people have with “grammar” is that the subject seems a bunch of arbitrary rules. Commands like “Do this” and “Don’t do that” give most of us a raging headache, and nothing gets better even when we try to follow “the rules.” In response, this session is designed not only to calm you but to get behind rules to the principles that simplify how sentences–to emphasize: any and all sentences–do or do not work to create meaning.

GETTING THE MOST OUT OF READING:

“The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
– Dr. Seuss, “I Can Read With My Eyes Shut!”
This workshop addresses how to cope with the large amount of reading that students are expected to do. It looks at how to get the most out of your lectures, how to read for exam revision and how to improve your general reading skills.

Nov. 3, Thur., 3-4pm, Fleming 170
