Write & Cite®: Academic Writing Readiness

Write & Cite® provides learners with the skills and knowledge needed not only to write, format, and properly cite papers, but also to think critically to define their research problem, find credible sources, and craft theses or dissertations worthy of publication.

The 8-section module can be customized to teach APA, MLA, or CMS documentation styles along with instruction regarding proper word choices, tone, paper organization, literature-based research, and techniques to avoid plagiarism.

Write & Cite® is designed to give learners the skills needed to write, format, and properly cite academic papers and dissertations. More than just a formal requirement, proper citation is imperative to respectfully borrow and expand upon others’ ideas.
