Keeping Your Readers on Track and Focused Through Using Essay Transition Strategies
Start Date: 11/21/2019Start Time: 12:00 PM
End Date: 11/21/2019End Time: 1:00 PM
Event Description:

Presenter: English Professor Dr. Gary Wilson

Ever wonder why some readers (and instructors) like some essays better than others, or why some essays seem more convincing and impacting than other essays that are filled to the brim with facts?  Maybe it is because your readers lose track or get lost in the maze of sentences and ideas.  To the rescue come transitions--strategies and techniques that the classical Greeks and Romans knew all too well could keep their audiences on track and expectantly anticipating upcoming ideas in a speech.  Dr. Wilson borrows some of the best of these great classical techniques to share how your essays and speeches can keep your audience's attention and also impart clarity to your arguments.  Join Professor Wilson for a workshop that has earned Cicero's Good Housekeeping Seal of Applied Rhetoric for strategies you can start using immediately in your essays.
