Online resources to help students summarize journal articles and write critical reviews

Online resources to help students summarize journal articles and write critical reviews – some useful resources at Raul Pacheco-Vega’s blog.

AcWri handwritten notes and journal article readingThe courses I teach tend to be very practical and applied. My teaching philosophy is founded on helping my students acquire employable skills. Writing solid, robust, concise and easy-to-read analytical summaries should be an acquired tool that they then can transfer to other fields. Politicians, bureaucrats and high-level people in government that I’ve talked to have always considered summarizing information a great tool that undergraduate and graduate education should provide. Yet, the online resources I found to help students summarize journal articles and write critical reviews left me wanting.
