Writing Center Lectures AUN Academy Students on Essay Writing

On January 24, the Writing Center received 51 students of the AUN Academy for an engaging presentation on descriptive writing.

The students are in their final year, SS3.

Welcoming the students, Interim Director of the Center, Ms. Emilienne Akpan, said what the students learn (about different essay writing patterns) will give them an advantage over their peers as they prepare for their national and international exit examinations.

Ms. Akpan noted that the tutorials, organized in collaboration with the Academy, are designed to meet the writing competency needs of all students in their respective class levels.

“The goal is to guide them through the identification and mastery of different patterns of development, while simultaneously applying conventions of writing in the English language.”

Academy vice Principal, Praise Abdulkarim, who led the students on the visit said the opportunity further exposes the students to other areas of writing and to a pool of different instructors besides those available at the Academy.

As part of the collaboration, Writing Center staff will be visiting the Academy for two interactive presentations on the ethical use of resources. This is in preparation for the annual essay-writing competition for all Academy students. Sub-topics during the seminars will include academic integrity, effective paraphrasing, summarizing and quotations.
