Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

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. 

Synopsis:

Giving Academic Presentations provides guidance on academic-style presentations for ESL students and native speakers. One goal of this text is to make presenters aware that giving an effective presentation requires mastery of a broad range of skills. Students will learn how to choose an appropriate topic, create effective visuals, and design a speech opening.

 This textbook provides:

*helpful analyses of speeches

*examination of major speech types, accompanying organizational strategies, and related language use

*tips for improving nonverbal behavior

*suggestions for speaker-listener interaction

*an analysis of ways to qualify claims and strategies for improving them

*opportunities for evaluating one's work and the work of others.
