Working with Sources


Cary Moskovitz

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. (Link will be sent to registered participants prior to the session.)

This virtual event is sponsored by the Thompson Writing Program and is co-sponsored by Duke Learning Innovation, Teaching Support Network (TSN), and The Graduate School.
