    Grad Students: The Writing Center will hold a Literature Review Workshop next Monday, September 28 at 6 pm!  Sign up here.  For more information, visit our workshops page.


To improve your writing, read actively and critically by engaging with the text(s).  Highlight, underline, or circle important key words or phrases.  Start a dialogue with the text by jotting down your responses or questions in the margins.  You can also summarize the main ideas from the text in your own words.  Try also annotating in Microsoft Word with the review button!  For more assistance with critical reading, check out our workshops or make an appointment with a consultant.
