Organization and Structure

Organization and structure are often challenges for student writers.

The Writing Program has developed some helpful resources:
Introductions (.doc)
Writing a Strong Thesis, or Crux (.doc)

Many students own a copy of The St. Martin's Handbook because it is required for WRIT 101, 102, and 104. This book has a great deal of information about organizing ideas and developing an effective structure:

  • Section 3c: Drafting a working thesis
  • Section 3e: Organizing verbal and visual information
  • Section 3f: Planning
  • Section 15a: Refining your plans
  • Section 15b: Organizing information

Student Life enhances the development of students as lifelong learners and leaders by supporting them throughout the progression of their academic careers.
