Reading specialized texts in English is becoming an essential activity in many academic fields. But how can the mountains of texts be mastered, key ideas captured, and plagiarism avoided? In this workshop, we will analyze various text types to gain insight into their structure and organization. Students will practice reading and note-taking skills and consider various ways to cite and endorse specialized sources for various academic fields, while learning how to read more effectively based on assignments. Using reading and notation techniques, workshop participants will practice and develop their skills in capturing the essential contents of academic texts and reproducing them in their own words.
