GSW 1100/1110: Intensive Introduction to Academic Writing/Introduction to Academic Writing: Instructor Resources

The resources listed on this page will help you to become familiar with your University Libraries at BGSU. If you have questions about the Library, feel free to speak with a librarian in person at the Research and Information Desk.

GSW Resources

This guide is a resource for GSW instructors to use in the classroom with their students. Librarians worked closely with the GSW program to develop this and have also spent quite a bit of time with the sample syllabi for this course. We want this resource to be as useful as possible. If you have suggestions for how to make it better, please provide feedback in the box on this page or email Rob Snyder:

Certain areas of this guide could be used to construct an entire class session around. For example, the tabs for evaluating sources, academic honesty and the citation tutorials are instructive as well as interactive.

Sample Lesson Plans for GSW 1100/1110
