How do you respond to adverts?  Do you believe what they say, or look for a hidden agenda?

Reading critically, and writing using critical techniques, are crucial skills you need to apply to your academic work.  It may seem difficult at first, but you may already be a more critical reader than you think!

This guide helps you develop both the ability to critically ask questions, and a reflective and critical approach to your own research and writing.  Broken down into three parts, it builds up your skills and confidence through focused activities that progressively develop your ability to critically read and write.
