Engaging critically with texts, and putting things in your own words
To succeed in your studies it is vital for you to be able to both read well, and use that reading in your writing.
This workshop looks at how you can engage with difficult academic texts and use them in your own writing. As well as discussing the practicalities of how you paraphrase, summarise and quote from sources, we will also think about how to engage critically with texts, and how reading relates to writing.
Our workshops run all year round at our Helpdesk in the Silberrad Student Centre, and cover all aspects of academic skills, maths and statistics. We also offer drop in writing and maths clinics where you can bring your work and get advice.
