It uses real texts and examples of student writing as part of an inductive/practice approach.It gives editing and error correction practice for problematic grammatical points. It focuses on the positive reasons for using and acknowledging sources and gives the student the knowledge and confidence to do this effectively rather than just being told not to plagiarise. Using a coherent and staged approach, this practical guide enables and empowers students to use academic sources in a supportive and contextualized way. It uses real student assignment titles, real student writing and real student errors as examples of correct and incorrect writing in the student's own work.
