"Every good reader has tools that help them become a great reader"

Moving from academic reading into academic writing is not easy. Readers need to carefully read a text, consider their response to it, then reflect on what it means in the context of their own writing or research. Using the three worksheets on this page, you'll learn more about a structured approach to reading and synthesizing the literature. This approach is ideal for anyone working on a literature review, independent project, dissertation, or thesis.

This page is designed to support our Reading Camp workshop but works as a great standalone resource.
