The aim of this workshop is to give students a chance to enhance their writing and composition skills and to practice the format of the 'Hausarbeit' (term paper) and the Take Home Exam. Using hands-on exercises, the stages of the writing process will be discussed from finding a topic to the final revisions. We will talk about the most common mistakes and how to avoid them as well as plagiarism and other writing-related topics. As this course is voluntary, students may choose to come to single sessions only, although a continuous attendance is highly recommended. Individual writing can be handed in and discussed during office hours. Please sign up on Stud.IP for details on session topics and organization. This workshop is especially recommended for students in the 'Proseminare' in literary and media studies. Yet, all other students writing term papers and Take Home Exams in North American Studies classes are also more than welcome to participate.
