  • Don’t write in separate paragraphs when given different topics
  • Make connections
  • Bill never had a class that wrote three separate essays
  • This will make you see narrow
  • Pull back and get wider perspective
  • All level 100 courses prepare you for level 200 courses
  • Joey Banghart is writing on the board
  • Katie Watson “Dog”
  • Rebecca Ward “Cat”
  • Rob Snodgrass “Tree”
  • Molly Appel “Fuzzy”

How could the  paper be better:

  1. Word choice
  2. Read better
  3. Slow down sentences
  4. More expression
  • Arrangement will improve papers
  • The order in which you want to say something
  • Style or word choice
  • Papers fail because you don’t get in the professor’s head
  • Use arrangement and word choice to get in the professor’s head
  • If you only report than no one will be interested
  • What problems are the audience interested in
  • We just grab quotes and toss them in papers and hope no one notices
  • Young students don’t digest quotes
  • Jessika Sowle gave us background info or location of the cat in her paper
  • Give audience when and where
  • Professors want when and where
  • Good novels have tension, descriptions, when, where
  • A great story also makes a good academic writing
  • Author needs to explain
  • Get the point across
  • Show connection between stories and academic writing

Look for connection when you write. Arrangement, style, and word choice are important factors needed to better a paper. Readers want to know when and where a story takes place.
