You’ll also get some tips on what to avoid when using resources, such as exact phrasing when you’re doing a paraphrase. It might be helpful to have a piece of paper handy (or an electronic notepad) to jot down notes and questions as they occur. This presentation will also be available on the WebCT for this class.
