Session Summaries by Writing Tutors

Lincolnwood, IL Writing tutoring
The student had read a science fiction story with a political/ethical message, and he decided he wanted to write his research/argument essay on the topic. We reviewed his notes and tried to make his point of view more specific. We looked at a research database I have access to, and began to look at articles that might be useful to him. For next week, he is to think through his topic more and find 8 quotes that relate to the issue and his point of view. and be prepared to discuss them. I also gave him more reading to do. He is an interesting thinker. He just needs to learn to articulate his thoughts more clearly (as he says himself).

For this session, the student presented a draft of a presentation for his history course on notable Native Americans. We spent the session practicing the presentation, then refining the introduction and the conclusion, which I explained act as a frame that gives the information in the body of the presentation a context which gives his audience a clear logic to follow. We also discussed, while editing, how the formality of the presentation affects the structure and diction level of the presentation and how presentations also take the same basic form as the essays we've been practicing throughout the summer. He did well on most of the essay. To make his essay stronger, we worked on changing his topic sentences to reflect the active voice. The operative question we asked was "What are you trying to say?" We would talk about the topic, then isolate the active verbs and find synonyms to see if we could come up with more concrete language that expressed his thesis more directly and succinctly. By the end of the session, he had written a good presentation.
