CLA101: Introduction to Classical Civilization

A guide to assist students with research for assignments in CLA101H5F on the UTM campus.


The UTM Academic Skills Centre is a valuable resource for assistance with your writing.

Learning Strategists at the Robert Gillespie Academic Skills Centre offer one-on-one instruction in the various forms of academic writing and oral presentations required in your courses. You can bring your work-in-progress from any course you are taking. Bring your work at any stage in its development, from brain-storming and planning to revising a draft. We can help you learn to interpret assignments, establish a critical perspective, read texts  critically, take notes effectively, form a strong thesis or research question, develop your analysis, construct a coherent argument, organize your paper effectively, use and document sources properly, revise your drafts, and improve grammar and style. We don't “proof-read” papers for you; we will help you learn to identify and correct problems of grammar and syntax.” UTM Academic Skills Centre.
