Learning Objectives for W2 Courses
Here is a basic checklist of Research Writing Skills to cover over the course of term in your W2 course. Feel free to adapt his list to your own discipline. Many of these skills can be taught concurrently, in pairs, through a single exercise. Hence, I've grouped them into useful pairs:
Finding a good topic Evaluating scholarly sources Summarizing a source
Narrowing your topic Navigating a scholarly source Annotating a source
Citing sources Quoting sources Finding sources
Responsible source use Integrating sources into a paper Creating a Bibliography
- You can find handy exercises for teaching many of these skills under the "Resources" section of this website.
- For helpful ideas for tackling these skills over the course of the term, see "Sequencing Assignments for W2 Courses" under "W2 Resources" on this website.
