Grammar Workshop
Monday, January 29 and Tuesday, January 30

Grammar Workshop reviews topics such as sentence structure, comma usage, semicolon usage, apostrophes, subject/verb agreement, pronoun/antecedent agreement, and point of view. These are typically our most popular workshops. We strongly recommend reserving a space.

APA Format is strongly recommended for students in the sciences. We’ll review formatting and citation guidelines, give students resources to take home, and end the workshop with an interactive group activity.

NEW WORKSHOP: College Admission Essays and Transfer Applications
Monday, March 5 and Tuesday, March 6
1-2 pm
In this workshop, we’ll review what universities such as UTPB, Texas Tech, Angelo State, UT-Austin, A&M, and other popular MC student transfer destinations are looking for in admissions essays. This will help transfer students improve their applications. This will also be a great resource for ECHS/Dual Credit students planning on applying to four year schools after graduation. Avoid common admission essay pitfalls and get inside information about what schools are looking for.
