This semester, I am TAing for Civil War and the International System at the University of Rochester. These are the slides that I am using for our midterm review session. They cover how to read academic articles, how not to write a bad in-class essay (which should be the subject of a full blog post at some point), and some material related to the class directly. The first two items should be useful to people outside of the class. I can’t say the same about the third.
Anyway, click here for the slides. Also, it is a good idea to read over the full blog post I have on how to read an academic article.
