Skills For Success Workshops

 

'Skills for Success' Workshops

Each semester, the History Department offers faculty-led Skills Workshops for students.  The schedule of workshops begins the second week of Fall and Spring semesters.  The first, in Week 2 of the semester, focuses on “Prep for Success,” behavioral strategies for achieving your academic goals. Workshops on Note-taking (Week 3),  Reading Analytically (Week 4), and Essay Writing (Week 5) highlight specific skills. The Essay Writing workshop  supports  midterm essay writing, and an optional Essay Writing workshop supports Warner Essay Contest submissions.
