Have you ever noticed that some writing just sounds more academic? Sure, some of this has to do with vocabulary and the topic of the writing, but another element comes from the adept use of scholarly language. In this hour-and-fifteen-minute workshop, participants will gain tips and strategies for using language, grammar, and style to their best advantage as they work to elevate the level of formality in their academic writing. Students will gain tips for writing and editing, as well as begin to understand why language used in certain ways has come to be used in scholarly work.
