Product description

Like its predecessor, the third edition of A"cademic Writing for Graduate Students "explains understanding the intended audience, the purpose of the paper, and academic genres; includes the use of task-based methodology, analytic group discussion, and genre consciousness-raising; shows how to write summaries and critiques; features Language Focus sections that address linguistic elements as they affect the wider rhetorical objectives; and helps students position themselves as junior scholars in their academic communities. Among the many changes in the third edition: *newer, longer, and more authentic texts and examples*greater discipline variety in texts (added texts from hard sciences and engineering)*more in-depth treatment of research articles*greater emphasis on vocabulary issues*revised flow-of-ideas section*additional tasks that require students to do their own research*more corpus-informed content*binding that allows the book to lay flat when open. The Commentary (teacher's notes and key) (978-0-472-03506-9) has been revised expanded.
