Writing Workshop
earns good grades

(Everyone Welcome)
Speaker: ROBIN WRIGHT, World News
Correspondent in the Middle East



It's three weeks until due date, and
your paper extolling the virtues of
small curd cottage cheese just doesn't
seem like A-plus material. What do you
You could blow it off and turn it in un-
polished. But a more astute approach
would be to join a growing number of
students who get free, professional help
from the English Composition Board's
Writing Workshop.
THE ECB, provider of such in-
stitutions as the entrance essay exam
and the junior/senior writing
requirement, runs the workshop as part
of their mission to improve the writing
of all students at the University.
Students working on anything from
job applications to dissertations can
come to the Writing Workshop for help.
ECB's goals, however, lie beyond in-
dividual projects. "We're trying not so
much to look at a particular paper,"
said ECB lecturer Litsa Varonis, "but
to teach the editing skills people need
for any type of writing, and get them to
use these skills on their own.
"PEOPLE OFTEN come in to have
us proofread for typing erros, but that's
not what we really do," she said. "We
work to correct errors in logic,
organization, support, as well as struc-
tural and sentence level problems.
People who want us to proofread for
spelling errors are not very welcome.
"Finally," she said, "we want people
to use these skills on their own."
If student responses are any in-
dication, the Writing Workshop has
been very successful in meeting that

EVERY STUDENT who visits the
workshop is asked to fill out an
evaluation. The evaluations, according
to lecturer Joe Nydahl, reveal that
many students leave the workshop
feeling very satisfied. Nydahl at-
tributes this to the personal attention
each student receives.
"The best way to teach writing is on a
one-to-one basis," he said. "Students
need a place like the Writing Workshop
to get instant feedback.
Varonis agrees. "Often when people
come in and work with one of the staff
members here, they develop a relation-
ship and work very well together," she
said. "If there are no open appointment
times available, we will often see the
person on our own time."
NYDAHL SAID the attention studen-
ts receive leads many to come back.
More than half of the 1,157 students who
came to the workshop in the 1980-81
academic year were repeat visitors.
The workshop sees students
primarily by appointment, though they
take walk-ins when time permits.
Located at 1025 Angell Hall, it is open
weekdays from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. ECB
staff members, who also teach in other
units of the University, see about 28
workshop students per day.
ECB staff members say students
should make their appointments far
enough in advance to allow for
scheduling difficulties, especially late
in a semester, when term papers are
"Early in a term, few people come in,
but from the middle to the end of a
semester we have to turn people
away," Varonis said. "We go bananas
during the last weeks of a term."

day-old rebellion Defense Minister Jose
Guillermo Garcia said it had been

but added that Ochoa's action hurt
Salvador's bid for democracy.
Ochoa is believed to have about 900
troops with him in Sensutepeque, 50
miles northeast of the capital.
Among other things, Ochoa has ac-
cused Garcia of allowing U.S. inter-
ference in Salvadoran affairs, and
demanded his resignation.
"WE HAVE promoted the democratic
system and now is no time for oppor-
tunistic soldiers to try to block out the
efforts of the people and of an in-
stitution which under my command has
begun democracy in El Salvador,"
Garcia said.
Some 5,000 peasants from across

members of the army-organized civil
defense militia, jammed the main plaza

Ochoa told the crowd that Garcia is
trying to portray him as a supporter of
the rightist Arena party, an allegation
Ochoa denied.
"Here in Cabana, everyone is treated
equally," Ochoa said. "We don't have
problems with any party."
