In my first college-level literature class, I was dumbfounded when the professor assigned a five-page paper on the symbolism in Dickens’ Great Expectations. Never before had I entertained the possibility that there was more than one way to “read” a work of fiction, so how was I supposed to write about my “interpretation” of it? I would have gladly traded my own wedding dress (it’s a Great Expectations thing) for a Reading and Writing Studio back then.
Fortunately for you, Macomb has two Reading and Writing Studios: J-305 on Center Campus and C-105 on South Campus. And their consultants can help you increase reading comprehension and confidence, organize and develop ideas, refine sentence and paragraph structure and, interpret assignment expectations. Is there a hidden meaning there?
Both individual and group sessions are available and some services are also offered online. Go to Reading and Writing Studios to learn more.
I expect you will have a great experience, unlike Dickens’ Miss Havisham on her wedding day.
