Academic Integrity Workshop

Learning how to use and cite visual and textual sources can be challenging. This workshop provides clarity around how sources can be used, why they should be documented, and how to document them appropriately. It will introduce you to some practical strategies for tracking your visual and textual research, reading, note-taking and paraphrasing that can help you effectively integrate your research into your writing and making processes.

Strategies For Reading Critically

In this activity-based workshop, students will practice and apply strategies for reading actively and critically. Using a sample reading and worksheet, students will practice "unpacking" an article and using the "They say, I say" method to prepare to respond to the article. A number of practical strategies will be workshopped, such as: identifying paratextual information, considering context, assessing structure, identifying key ideas and supporting arguments, and so on.  This workshop is targeted to students of ENGL 1003/1004 Essay and the Argument, but is open to all students.
