Whether you are moving directly from your undergraduate degree or returning after some time away, the first term of graduate school will challenge you to expand skills critical to your success. Two of the most essential skills needed to thrive are reading and writing. This new, four-part Rackham/Sweetland workshop series will showcase reading and writing practices for new graduate students that will inform your approaches to reading and writing through the course of your graduate career.

What’s Reading Got to Do with It?: Reading to Support Writing in Graduate School

This workshop will explore how you can read strategically to support your work as a writer in your academic field and discipline.

What is the relationship between reading and writing for academic purposes? How can we read to support our work as writers in our specific academic fields and disciplines? In this 50-minute Rackham/Sweetland workshop, you will discover answers to these questions through guided reflection on your current reading (and writing) practices, as well as a hands-on introduction to specific reading strategies that support writing. You'll also leave with additional resources and ideas for how to continue to explore and develop the reading-writing connection in your own academic work.
