Our EAP Workshop Series will continue this week with Xiao Shi presenting on the topic of “What About the Other Side: The Counterargument in your Academic Writing”. Critical thinkers, whether it be for writing essays, defending an argument, or simply thinking about everyday topics, need to be able to understand the other side, not only focusing on one position, as there are two sides to everything. In this workshop we will analyze the correct way to write about this in an argumentative essay, giving credence to differing positions.
The Center for Language Education EAP Workshop Series addresses issues which are pertinent to both students and faculty across the SUSTech academic landscape. And, going forward we will continue to provide learning opportunities, hoping that the community of learners takes advantage of them to move forward towards more sustainable and refined writing practices.
