CSET Writing Workshop: The Basics
From Jeff Layne
CSU, Chico Writing Center Tutor
This presentation is the first of three Student Learning Center workshops to help students prepare for the writing portion of the California Subject Examinations for Teachers (CSET). Stephanie Evans, an experienced writing tutor and ENGL 130 (Academic Writing) instructor, begins by providing an overview of the CSET structure and scoring system. She also covers the differences between expressive and expository essays, which are both part of the test. She then describes the different areas in which the essays are scored and provides time management strategies.
