Broadening the traditional notion of undergraduate research, WRITING, READING, AND RESEARCH thoroughly covers the essential skills for developing a research paper: analytical reading, synthesizing, paraphrasing, and summarizing. Presenting the process of research in a practical sequence, including separate chapters on finding, analyzing, and integrating sources, the authors illustrate each stage of the process with examples of student and professional writing.

WRITING, READING, AND RESEARCH, Ninth Edition, provides helpful and engaging exercises, frequent opportunities to write, and many occasions for discussion and critical response.
