Summary: This unique interdisciplinary text and reader introduces students to the multiple genres of academic writing across the curriculum.

Academic Writing is the first text to offer a discussion of academic genres and writing-to-learn and learning-to-write in college; an explanation of genre practices and conventions across the disciplines; annotated examples of student papers across the disciplines written in response to actual college assignments; instruction i ...show moren research, writing from sources, and documentation; and thematic clusters of professional readings as engaging examples of published academic writing. Academic Writing will prepare students in all academic disciplines to succeed in today's challenging world of writing--both in the classroom and in the workplace beyond.

Features

  • The book's centerpiece, Chapter 3, ''Understanding Types of Academic Writing,'' includes 30 annotated student papers representing 15 different genres of academic writing across 17 disciplines.
  • The wide range of academic genres includes personal essays, response papers, journals, position papers, reviews, abstracts, informative and lab reports, research reports, field observations, proposals, and Web-based projects.
  • Two introductory chapters orient students to the world of college writing, especially the importance of writing-to-learn, and the key role played by genre in academic writing.
  • Four thematic clusters of professional readings on topics of interest to today's students--such as the influence of music on their lives--demonstrate a range of academic genres and provide occasions for discussion and for writing in those genres.
  • Detailed explanation of the research process (Ch. 4) emphasizes understanding, retrieving, and evaluating print, non-print, and electronic sources, and offers students practical ways to analyze and organize the complex array of resource material available to today's researchers.
  • Instruction in writing from sources, including summarizing, quoting, paraphrasing, analyzing, and synthesizing, is supported by student and professional writing samples (Ch. 4).
  • User-friendly, side-by-side charts comparing MLA, APA, CSE, and Turabian documentation styles make distinctions immediately apparent (Ch. 4).
