Summary

Features

* An emphasis on core academic skills: Academic Writing introduces core concepts used across a variety of disciplines in order to help students recognize patterns that appear in all academic reading and writing situations.
* Connections across contexts: From traditional science reports written for fellow scholars to blogs written for general audiences, this interdisciplinary text contains a wide range of readings, allowing students to examine how context influences academic writing.
* "Concept in Practice" and "Applying the Concepts" features: These features encourage students to apply the critical reading, research, and writing strategies that they learn in composition courses to what they read and write in all of their courses.
* An anthology: This accompanying anthology includes forty-two articles drawn from across a wide range of disciplines-including Sociology, Psychology, Computer Science, Communications, History, Art, Communications, Business, Economics, Geography, and Environmental Science-which are grouped together by engaging interdisciplinary themes: Social Networks (Chapter 13), Perceptions and Perspectives (Chapter 14), Language, Literacy, and Technology (Chapter 15), Violence and Justice (Chapter 16), and Conservation and the Environment (Chapter 17).
