For Graduate Students

Working with Sources

October 10, -
Speaker(s): Charlotte Asmuth
Working with source texts is a key element of nearly all scholarly writing. Such work involves many elements including choosing sources, summary, paraphrase, quotation, and citation. Students' knowledge of these practices is often rudimentary and their attempts to deploy these skills often lack rhetorical purpose. This session gives an overview of the challenges students face in working with sources and explores strategies for helping students approach sources effectively as writers.

Registration closes on October 7th.
