As academics, we write papers and submit them to journals. Then they are read by colleagues and vetted for accuracy and presentation. The papers are only published if they convince the referees and the editor that the results are correct, interesting and novel. The technique we shall describe is one we used in upper division courses that helped students develop both their reading and writing skills without sacrificing time dedicated to the subject. Lunch will be served. To register online for this event, please navigate to My.Scranton and select the "University Links" tab. In the top left channel, click on "CTLE Event Registration."
