We rely on words so much. We believe that God spoke words of creation and revelation in the past and speaks them today as well. We know when a speaker has used the power of the word effectively…and when that has not happened.
Those same words can become obstacles when not understood or used well. Whether it is the sheer volume of reading that must be completed or a paper that must communicate your ideas in combination with the ideas of others before you, writing and reading can become quite challenging, especially at high academic levels.
The Language Development Center is devoted to helping students read efficiently, write effectively, and improve language skills as needed to do well in seminary classes. Within this section, you will find links to resources that may make your reading and writing life easier to manage.
Feel free to contact me, Dr. Sheryl Stewart, for an appointment to discuss a paper, reading strategies, or any other language issues.
