Now in its third edition, Academic Writing offers a succinct and practical introduction to the development of research papers across the disciplines. Structured around contemporary genre theory, which establishes the importance of context for effective communication, the text describes the writing process step by step, including how to formulate a topic; gather and properly document sources; develop strong proposals, introductions, core paragraphs, and conclusions; and refine the final draft. Additionally, readers will observe the progress and thought processes of Jenna, a first-year student, as she crafts her own paper. New to this edition are materials for instructors that include full-length research papers, PowerPoint slides, an exam bank, and ideas for study. Rich with such pedagogical features as chapter learning objectives, annotated passages that illustrate aspects of academic style, and a glossary, Academic Writing is a must-have textbook for students developing their research and writing skills.
