Academic Writing and Research Experience (AWARE)

AWARE is a two-week residential program for students entering 12th grade from the Greater Green Bay Area School Districts. AWARE will introduce students to the UWGB Cofrin Library, writing center, and a host of online writing and research tools. Students will live on campus Monday through Friday for two weeks and return home on the weekend in between.
AWARE will teach students to identify topics, develop thesis, collect evidence using library and internet documenting sources, in addition to allowing students to practice oratory skills through the presentation of their research to a panel of judges. Workshop activities are designed to develop and enhance writing proficiency and to introduce research supported writing.
