Key Words for Academic Writers

by Rebecca Brittenham, Hildegard Hoeller

Key Words for Academic Writers Synopsis

This brief, flexible guide features dictionary-style entries on the key terms and concepts associated with academic and research-based writing, as well as offering a user's guide to academic culture. Offering enormous flexibility, the alphabetically-organized entries in this text can be introduced in any order to present discussions of writing papers-from developing a thesis statement to citing sources. Each entry uses examples from scholarly writing to explain a particular aspect of the writing or research process-Analysis, Argument, Summary, Synthesis-and provides concrete, manageable techniques and exercises to help students make their writing work. Entries from different disciplines show the development of specialized knowledge and specific rhetorical practices. A guide to academic culture as well as a writing guide, the text helps students develop skills such as how to interpret a syllabus or analyze an assignment.
