This unique interdisciplinary text and reader introduces students to the multiple genres of academic writing across the curriculum. Academic Writing is the first text to offer a discussion of academic genres and writing-to-learn and learning-to-write in college; an explanation of genre practices and conventions across the disciplines; annotated examples of student papers across the disciplines written in response to actual college assignments; instruction in research, writing from sources, and documentation; and thematic clusters of professional readings as engaging examples of published academic writing. Academic Writing will prepare students in all academic disciplines to succeed in today¿s challenging world of writing—both in the classroom and in the workplace beyond.
