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.
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).
