Academic Skills Strategies Workshops

February 4-22, 2013

Study Skills for the Sciences

This is a very special presentation for anyone taking a science—especially General Chemistry, EBIO, Physics.  Come to hear what a current Senior/Tutor give useful tips for continued success in these courses.  Bring your questions about YOUR study skills; You will learn effective, efficient and practical, ‘do-able’ skills that you can put into immediate use.  It might be easier to improve upon your academic performance than you think!!!

 

Chess and Punctuation: The “Moves” to the Game

Learning “the moves” of chess and learning those of punctuation are very similar: it takes only about fifteen minutes to get the hang of either…but a lifetime to master the sequences.  This one-hour tutorial will explore a fun analogy between the two “games.”  First, we will review the moves; then, we shall consider how the moves are part of the larger sequences and purposes.  For instance, the king in chess may be taken as similar to the period in punctuation–that is, the point of the game but, largely, uninteresting to meaning-making.  If nothing else, you should come out of this tutorial with a better sense of both games! (Note: no prior knowledge of chess is necessary to enjoy this workshop!)
