Working with Sources 

Working with texts is a key element of nearly all scholarly writing, but especially so in the humanities and interpretive social sciences.  Students’ knowledge of practices such as source selection; employing summary, paraphrase, and quotation; and citation is often rudimentary and their attempts often lack rhetorical purpose. This session gives an overview of common challenges students face in working with sources and explores strategies for helping students approach sources effectively as writers.
