Event Description:
In this workshop, students will learn how to dissect essay questions and test prompts and to organize claim or thesis-based argument/essay responses to questions and issues. The skills presented and practiced in this workshop include thesis development, essay outlining, and using devices that would ensure a smooth flow of ideas.  Moreover, the skills honed here are essential for response papers at all levels of public management writing, policy memoranda, and the MPAQE. The workshop has a hands-on component.
