Working with Sources
Sponsor(s): Thompson Writing Program, Duke Learning Innovation, and Teaching Support Network (TSN)
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. (75 min) Led by Charlotte Asmuth, Thompson Writing Program. Zoom Link will be sent to registered participants prior to the session.
