Reading Strategies for Writing Papers

Reading Strategies for Writing Papers Online

Doing original research can feel overwhelming, especially when you need to read a lot of scholarly texts to prepare to write a paper. Join us for 45-minutes to learn strategies to tackle scholarly texts efficiently. Students will learn how about and gain practice with:

  • Lateral reading methods to efficiently make decisions about which texts to read
  • Selective reading methods to identify key elements of a scholarly text
  • Active reading methods to ensure your sources are doing enough work for your research

Audience: This workshop is designed for undergraduate students at any level. Graduate students are welcome to attend.

Registration: Required for access to the Zoom room. You will also receive a reminder email 1-hour before the event.

Find another workshop in the track “Introduction to Research at Yale.” For individual support, reach out to your Personal Librarian or Subject Specialist Librarian.

Any student who participates in at least 3 library workshops during the fall 2022 semester will be eligible for a prize. Learn more about the Workshop Incentive Program.
