Look Smart: Avoid Bad Grammar (Michael Ullyot's Literature Lab Module 1)

Turn Ideas into Arguments (Michael Ullyot's Literature Lab Module 2)
In this video, you learn in four stages, how to: annotate texts (for six features); think about your notes; filter your thoughts; and summarize your arguments.
Quote with Integrity (Michael Ullyot's Literature Lab Module 3)
In this video, you learn why and how to quote other people’s writing, in your writing. You also learn how to cite your sources, whether they're prose or verse. And how to integrate that textual evidence smoothly into your analysis, and when to paraphrase it. Finally, you learn why plagiarizing sources in your essay is the equivalent of claiming that you and your friends recorded Rihanna songs in your garage.
