Event description

Description

If someone told you the moon was made of cheese, would you just believe them?

It is the same, if a lot more subtle, when you read and write academically. Your job can be to challenge 'the face value' of things, and know how to express that. This ability to be critical in writing is what separates out the very best students, but what is really meant by it? Find out in this fun and interactive workshop, by exploring questions like:

  • Why should I accept that it is true?
  • How do I know if a source is credible or not?
  • If two people say the opposite about my topic, how should I handle this when I write?
  • How can I give my opinion towards others ideas, in an academic way, without seeming rude?
  • Does 'being critical' always mean saying something bad??

Within the session we have real examples of good-scoring critical student writing to look at with you.

While the session is aimed at Level 5-6, people achieving, on average, 60%+ at Level 4 may also benefit and are welcome to join.
