Writing Workshops & Seminars
Do you need to brush up your own writing skills before teaching your students how to write more effectively? If so, Dr. Stephen Wilbers hosts a website that provides hundreds of free writing resources, columns, and exercises for writers and teachers of writers.
From his homepage, click on Topics & exercises in the menu towards the top; here you will find a long list of his humorous newspaper columns in alphabetical order. A few examples include apostrophes, capitalization rules, commas, editing, hyphens, letter writing, persuasive writing, punctuation FAQs, and verbs. There are also exercises linked to the columns and challenges on grammar, proofreading, punctuation, and word choice.
