Learning academic practices
Published Tuesday, December 13, 2005 by bev trayner | E-mail this post
Students have little idea about:
* writing paragraphs;
* citing other people's work;
* the difference between qutoing form commercial sites, educational or organisational sites and academic books or journals.
But they, or let's say a number of them, seem hungry to learn. I encourage them to write and re-write and re-re-write. Each time they write something they get suggestions and comments about how they could turn it into something that will get them a better mark. Some of them think that's cheating!
