In this section, you will find many instructional materials we've developed for our Writing Center teaching.
However, there are limitations to these materials. Assignments vary, and different instructors want different things from student writers. Therefore, the advice here may or may not apply to your writing situation.
Finally, handouts can give only a fraction of the customized guidance that an individual conference with a Writing Center instructor can provide. If you have questions about the information in our handouts, please make an appointment to see a Writing Center instructor.
Developing a thesis statement
Many papers you write require developing a thesis statement. In this section you'll learn what a thesis statement is and how to write one.
Keep in mind that not all papers require thesis statements. If in doubt, please consult your instructor for assistance.
