Workshop "Sandwich model for incorporating sources into your text. Part 1"
The workshops address a common difficulty writers face while working on academic texts. Demonstrating familiarity with existing research and citing prominent studies is expected in a scholarly paper, but doing it effectively is a skill that takes time and practice to develop. During our hands-on sessions, we will work on incorporating information from outside sources into authors' paragraphs logically and naturally. We will take a step-by-step approach and progress from some closely guided exercises to more independent and individualized expression. While the first session will be spent on constructing paragraphs containing quotes or paraphrases from prescribed elements, the second one will allow participants to apply that process to their own writing. Participants will need to prepare two or three sources they want to incorporate into their papers and will produce some paragraphs ready to go into an essay or an article.
