This set of downloadable learning units is designed to be used by teachers in class or as an independent study tool by students. Each unit covers a key study skill and may be used as a stand-alone unit or in sequence to give complete coverage of academic good practice.
We have produced a range of handy single-page study skills guides to complement each of the study units. Each guide contains a summary of the key information from the study unit for you to use as an aide memoir as you carry out the research for your EPQ, project or coursework.
We have also compiled some lists of resources available online to help you get started with your research in History and English/Theatre Studies:
See, as well, this great resource hub from University College, Oxford, which has links to loads of useful online resources to help with research in a wide range of Social Sciences, Medical Sciences, Humanities, Mathematics and Life Sciences subjects. You can pick a subject area such as Social Science and narrow it to a specific subject, such as Politics, to view resources for that subject, or browse the whole collection.
