The advice files listed here by category answer the kinds of questions that University of Toronto students ask about their written assignments. Most were created by writing instructors here—people who are familiar with U of T expectations. But you will also find links to good advice from other institutions under Further Resources.

Teachers from across the Web are welcome to create links to any of the Advice pages and to copy our printer-friendly PDF Advice files. If you use our material, however, please follow the guidelines laid out in our Fair-Use Policy.
