Summary

Featuring the hallmark writing sequence of the best-selling Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum, this brief rhetoric focuses on the key academic writing strategies of summary, synthesis, analysis, and critique.

Responding to the growing interest in academic writing, this popular guide focuses on the critical reading and writing strategies that students need in order to thoughtfully interpret and incorporate source material into their own papers. The text employs high-interest readings from a range of disciplines to allow students to practice their summary and synthesis skills, while numerous student papers model the kinds of academic texts students are expected to produce.

Features

  • Practical advice for academic writing focuses on essential skills such as summary, paraphrase, quotation, critique, synthesis, and analysis.
  • Two chapters discuss the explanatory synthesis and the argument synthesis to cover the most common types of academic papers.
  • Thorough coverage of critical reading and critique shows students how to evaluate and respond to source material.
  • Concise, but complete, coverage of the writing process emphasizes the recursive processes of drafting and revising and the importance of refining or rethinking one's thesis as the essay develops.
  • Annotated student essays in various draft stages model the development of key writing skills.
  • Chapter 7, "Locating, Mining, and Citing Sources," discusses research and documentation strategies and includes a model of a documented essay.
  • Clusters of timely, challenging readings on compelling topics allow students to practice newly learned skills.
