  • UW: Jan 26, 2016 (Critical Reading, "I type, therefore I am," Paragraphing)

    Our discussion on critical reading expands on our topics from week 3. We take a deeper look at the methods and strategies writers use to get more out of a text. Summarizing, paraphrasing, and quoting are used to present information in a new context, but critical reading is how we make sense of attitudes, ideologies, and patterns of thought in a complex work. We'll discuss Tom Chatfield's "I type therefore I am" and show how close reading leads to exposition, two essential tools for reading and writing in an academic context.

  • UW: Jan 19 (Summary, Paraphrase, & Quotation)

    Our discussions this week will be informed by academic integrity and plagiarism. To this end, we will discuss writing techniques that demonstrate reading comprehension: summary, paraphrase, and quotation. The slides also provide an overview of clauses and sentence structure.
