Resources for Students

The following sections provide a variety of resources to help you with your writing or instructional needs. We are always developing new resources and content; if there is something you would like to see added, please contact us via email ( or let us know in person (at Science Library 193). 

Resource Guides

Sentence-level Choices: This page contains resources for composing and reading sentences. Because of English’s flexibility, its intent is to provide resources for sentence-level choices, rather than prescribe a specific writing style. It is also available as a PDF one sheet.


Handouts & Worksheets

The Writing Process
Use these steps when writing! This handout is a two page overview of four steps that make up the writing process: brainstorm, draft, revise, and edit.

Effective Writing Tips

We outline and identify five ways to improve your writing:

  1. Start writing early
  2. Remember the prompt
  3. Pace yourself
  4. Write the introduction and conclusion last
  5. Revise in a couple days

View this two page handout for detailed information.
