Meant as a companion to The ACS Style Guide, not a competitor, this book is an extraordinary resource for upper-level chemistry majors as well as graduate students faced with writing a journal article, a conference abstract, or a thesis. Full of prepared research projects and exercises, WriteLike a Chemist provides expert instruction ideal for students from diverse backgrounds, including both native and nonnative speakers of English. It is specifically designed to help students transition from the writing skills required in undergraduate lecture and laboratory classes to writing skills required by career chemists: a journal article, a scientific poster, and a research proposal. Each of these types of writing is directed towarda different audience, and writing for a journal requires a different writing style than writing a research proposal for the National Science Foundation. Thus to write like a chemist requires that one learns to write for different audiences. This book assists young scientists in developing thatessential writing skill.

Teaching and Researching Reading was first written to help language professionals understand the complex nature of reading. Now in a thoroughly updated and improved second edition, the book expands connections from research on reading to instructional practices and teacher-initiated action research. Offering an updated overview of reading theory, it summarises key ideas and issues in first and second language contexts. In addition to providing insightful research analyses, Grabe and Stoller offer practical advice for practitioners and researchers, including evidence-based teaching ideas and a multi-step iterative process for conducting meaningful action research on reading-related topics. The volume outlines 29 projects for teacher adaptation and use, as well as numerous new or substantially expanded resource materials that can be used for both action research and classroom instruction. Learning aids featured throughout the volume include · key concept boxes and a glossary of key terms · quote boxes highlighting critical issues in the field · resource lists of relevant journals, books and websites Fully revised throughout, with a range of new exemplary L1 and L2 research studies and an entirely new chapter on the move from research implications to instructional applications, this second edition of Teaching and Researching Listening is an invaluable resource for teacher trainers, practicing teachers, materials writers and researchers alike.
