In addition to the Writing Studio and myself, Undergraduate Writing Partners (UWPs) are available to assist you with your writing on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays from 8-10 pm in Carr 136, beginning on September 18. Who are UWPs? They’re students just like you, the key difference being that they already have Writing 20 under their belt! These sophomores and juniors have volunteered to help with your writing. You can visit at any stage of the writing process – from brainstorming, to drafting, to revising, to polishing the final draft. I’ve shared our course materials with the UWPs, so they will be familiar with MP1. The UWPs can also help with writing for your other courses. No appointment is needed. Just drop in!
Please read a primary research paper by Hall-Spencer et al. (2008), and a news article about this paper (News & Views paper). Make sure you read the primary research article first! These two papers are on Blackboard in the Readings folder. The purpose of these readings is to introduce you to reading scholarly scientific articles and to learn about a cool, influential ocean acidification study (one of the first papers on the Italian CO2 vent research!)
