Eicher Hall 218
Students often wonder how to approach their professors and what sort of style to use when they e-mail, write a note, or speak in person. Formal? Casual? Polite? Direct? Urgent? Even brief communications require decisions about appropriate style. This workshop covers do's, don'ts, and tips for polite, professional, and effective communication with professors.
This workshop introduces the MLA documentation style (8th edition), including how to quote and summarize from an original source. It's a hands-on workshop in which you will see examples and do exercises. Topics include citing within the text, using signal phrases, creating the Works Cited page, and documenting online sources.
