Academic Skills For Success

This page is meant to be a home for academic skills that help students be successful at the post-secondary level

Writing Strategies

Reading and Writing in an academic setting are some of the most complex and difficult skills to master. Being able to describe personal beliefs and feelings clearly, learning to critically evaluate materials you have read, and learning to carefully reflect are skills that will be invaluable long after you leave NorQuest.

However, right now learning to understand what you are reading, what is being asked of you, and to clearly communicate your understanding may feel like a more immediate concern.

These resources will focus on how to use skills in English; but adapting these skills for Sciences, Nursing or Business can be valuable too.
