Can you spot the error below?

The company's CEO, as well as his administrative staff, were asked to resign due to mismanagement of investor funds. 

Come practice recognizing when nouns and the verbs that follow them do and do not agree, even in long, complex sentences or when lengthy phrases come between the subjects and verbs. This is an important skill to have for complex science writing. We'll also practice making sure pronouns agree with the nouns they refer to earlier in a piece of writing. Bring a piece of writing you're working on if you wish!

This workshop for the campus community is sponsored by the English Language Institute, part of the Center for Engaged Teaching & Learning. For information, email Belinda at ELI@ucmerced.edu. View the fall workshop schedule here.
