    ITEM#: 14190226

    Like its predecessor, the third edition of Academic Writing for Graduate Studentsexplains 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.
