An essay writer should be familiar with academic and popular literature. In the beginning, you may be confused about what is expected of you, but with a little practice, you will develop an excellent essay. It is also important to avoid procrastination or writing in an unmotivated manner. Papers that are written in a rush will show that the writer lacks responsibility and is not serious about the task.

Submitted by Taylor Haynes / California Polytechnic, San Luis Obispo on Tue, 07/18/2023 - 15:15

Join us on Thursday July 27th at 4 PM EST for our 52nd Slither!

Sarah St. Angelo from Dickinson College will share some of her strategies for helping students remember concepts and skills from prior coursework that they "should" remember before her junior/senior inorganic course. Student-led review presentations, LMS-based warm-up topics and quiz, and a rapid collaborative recollection of models of bonding help Sarah's students remember important ideas and take ownership of their learning from early in the semester.
