Academic Reading- Resources for Staff

Academic reading - the bane of our lives. Students hate it, staff insist that it is essential for academic integrity... and there are continuous moral panics about plagiarism and clunky writing. On these pages we have tried to de-construct academic reading and to suggest strategies - and resources - that link reading to notemaking and to successful writing. We also have a Preventing Plagiarism course for students and additional website for staff (go straight there from here <http://learning.londonmet.ac.uk/TLTC/connorj/WritingGroups/> or via the Activities and resources handout on reading, below) . Please use these resources as they make sense to you - and feel free to adapt in your own teaching.
