Teens write every day. On their phones! In texts, social media, and chat rooms, they freely express their opinions and ideas.
Time to level up: academic writing is the original chat room!
Higher education is all about making those opinions precise and well supported. Just with a more narrow set of rules.
We want to show students how to
- navigate difficult topics
- avoid ranting, emotional language
- use research and logic to make their points
- understand someone else’s opinion
- disagree respectfully, without resorting to personal attacks
These skills are essential to the academic enterprise and to all communication!
