Working with Scientific Text

Depending on the level of the learners, texts from popular scientific magazines or from engaging scientific websites/journals will be used to make the learners acquainted with the field of doing research. Prior to class, students will be handed a variety of articles dealing with different topics that should be interesting to most people. During the lecture, the learners will be taught how to read such an article, to find the elements that hold key importance, and how to report about the key information from the article they have been dealing with in their own micro-article.
