I write, speak, invest, network, and question to stimulate fruitful conversation. Let's talk about human flourishing! It begins with freedom. Holy leisure is the key to human being, freedom and generativity. Please join me in the adventure of realizing Christ!
As a member of the permanent community of a Catholic college campus center, I designed an intensive workshop for college students based on my experience helping with student papers and dissertations. I address the weaknesses I’ve observed, and give a structural model for the design of thesis papers. This workshop is most effective if I can get hold of one paper from each participant ahead of time, or if even one will offer a paper in progress up for public scrutiny.
I’ve also adapted this model for use with high school students as “Constructing a Research Paper”.
Most Catholics could use some help learning to write better non-fiction, but most have no time for instruction after the college years. I have often felt that Satan is thrilled with the problems I see in student writing – surely, he would prefer us impotent in the use of words. During the formative years of their lives, so many bright people are told their writing is great and passed on up and out. In fact, much of it is awful, reflects weak thinking, and saddens me terribly.
If we would communicate Christ, we might start with improving our writing. I would love to help you do that!
