Giving Academic Presentations (02 - Old Edition)by Susan M. Reinhart
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the 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.
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.
