Blog Spotlight: They Say/I Say
If you've been to the Writing Centre, you have probably come across Graff & Birkenstein's They Say/I Say. We use it quite a bit around here to learn about writing and to develop our skills. Not only was the 3rd edition recently released, but a brand new blog was also created. It's called They Say/I Blog, and we think it's worth a read!
Event: 3 Minute Thesis
The Three Minute Thesis (3MT) Competition will be held next Tuesday March 4th. We are thrilled to see two of our tutors - Maggie & Cory - on the program. Maggie will present at 9:40am and her talk is titled Transitional Forms: Competing Modes of Scientific Storytelling in the Victorian Era. Cory will present at 10:00 am and his talk is titled Cold War Warrior? Diefenbaker and Canadian-Soviet Relations.
Good luck Maggie, Cory, and all the graduate student competitors. To learn more about the 3MT competition, click here.
We are thrilled that we have had such a positive response from students about our Go Go Grammar! workshop series. We will continue to keep Laurier students updated about future sessions. If you didn't manage to register for the series, here's a little grammar cartoon to keep you on your toes.

Thanks to Emmy for sending this my way.
