Study Skills Series

Last year I began gathering together the teaching resources that I developed during my time teaching English literature at the University of Leeds.  They include worksheets, short essays, advice, suggested reading, and a few little tips.  I have gathered them here, and I hope they will be of interest both to university students beginning a degree in English literature and to their tutors who may wish to adapt these ideas for use in their classrooms.
