Writing Workshop: Critical Reading of Academic Texts

Friday, Sept. 17, 4:15-5:45 p.m., LeChase 481 

This workshop will focus on how to read academic journal articles and other texts efficiently and rhetorically. Participants will practice deconstructing academic texts by identifying arguments, pinpointing the author’s position, evaluating evidence, asking questions, and taking notes. NOTE: This is NOT a speed-reading course, but rather the first step to unpacking academic writing.

Workshops are accessible via Zoom. To join any workshop remotely, please follow this link https://rochester.zoom.us/my/warnerwritingsupport.

Workshops are free and open to all members of the university. Preregistration is not required. For any accommodation needs, please contact Mary Judge at (585) 275-2454 or email at Mjudge@warner.rochester.edu. For information on free, one-on-one writing consulting, go to: https://www.warner.rochester.edu/students/academics/writing/.
