Words and expressions to avoid in scientific writing The secret of good writing is to strip every sentence to its clearest components. Every word that serves no function, every long word that could be a short word, every adverb that carries the same meaning that’s already in the verb, every passive construction that leaves the reader unsure of who is doing what – these are 1001 adulterants that weaken the strength of a sentence.
Writing Centers in Multilingual Settings: A Workbook by Eve Smith English Language Specialist, Russia, 2016 Each section of this manual is divided into two parts: background information and “Center Creation Questions.” In the background information section, you will find a discussion of writing center theory and practice in the United States.
You will learn a condensed version of the history of writing centers and their purpose. The following section, entitled “Center Creation Questions,” will help you analyze the background information and apply it to your own context. The answers you provide will, in turn, help you identify your center’s audience, needs, purpose, and development strategy. By answering the “Center Creation Questions” as you go through this workbook, you will develop the core information in your writing center handbook. Finally, a list of articles, videos, or books at the end of each section will guide you to where you might find more information.
