    • Define a compelling and viable problem, question, or project;
    • Formulate an arguable thesis in response to the problem, question, or project;
    • Use library and other research tools to locate sources, and manage searches efficiently and ethically;
    • Actively engage sources in an intellectual dialogue, always distinguishing one’s own ideas from those of others;
    • Substantiate and develop ideas through the analysis of evidence and the critical use of Sources;
    • Recognise and contend with counter-arguments and other possible objections;
    • Organise ideas coherently and compellingly;
    • Express ideas in clear, cogent sentences;
    • Insightfully critique their own writing and the writing of others;
    • Revise for clarity and cogency at every level, based on self-critique and critique from others.

    Methods: techniques to read effectively and efficiently, note-taking techniques, plagiarism tracking systems, worksheets and check- lists, review and critique techniques, role-playing.
