Setting Up Your Argument: Writing Effective Introductions – Prerecorded Workshop


Available on demand until December 22


This prerecorded workshop is taught by Dr. Peter Grav

In the humanities and social sciences, the introduction to the research article plays a pivotal role as it must argue convincingly for the research’s rationale, as well as provide context so your reader can both understand and appreciate what’s at stake.  In this workshop, we’ll use the research of John Swales to explore how to construct an effective research article introduction, considering, through examples from a range of disciplines, the various rhetorical “moves” and “steps” involved in bringing your reader on board. 

This is the second of 3 workshops in the Writing Argumentation Research Articles (for students in Divisions 1 and 2) workshop series.

This 50-minute workshop is prerecorded. Please register to receive a link to view the workshop. If you are not able to register online (i.e. if you are not a currently registered U of T graduate student), please contact Lauren at sgs.gcac@utoronto.ca and she will register you manually.
