Publisher Comments:

English for Nursing, Academic Skills, is designed to prepare non-native speakers of English for the language-related skills and tasks and the cultural content necessary for success in associate and baccalaureate degree nursing programs in the United States. This textbook focuses on the academic strategies and skills needed for nursing studies, including reading and vocabulary, research and writing, listening and note-taking, and test-taking.

and#160;

Each of six units focuses on a different academic skill taught through nursing content that includes historical and contemporary perspectives on the nursing profession as well as important medical issues such as death and dying and mental health and illness. The textbook features readings from actual nursing school textbooks and research-based nursing journals.

and#160;

The text includes activities for oneand#160;lecture,and#160;which is available in MP3 format on theand#160;book's companion website.

Synopsis:

Tech Talk contains authentic materials and excerpts from nonfiction books and from NPR that deal with popular, newsworthy issues in science and technology. Along with readings, the book also contains related exercises in comprehension, vocabulary, discussion, grammar, and writing. Although the readings in the book were selected to appeal to all readers, they may be especially helpful to English learners who are engineers, scientists, or university students in technical fields. In addition to providing reading practice, this textbook aims to:

" Teach grammar through examples of real usage.

" Provide practice in the writing styles commonly used in science and engineering: explanation, persuasion, and critical analysis.

" Provide opportunities for verbal practice through class discussion

" Encourage English learners to read independently and to learn language through reading.

Synopsis:

Like its predecessor, the third edition of Academic 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.
