Advance in Academic Writing prepares students to meet the many challenges of academic writing in English for undergraduate and graduate studies. Each chapter presents authentic academic texts on a topic of scientific or social interest. As students read and analyze the texts, they develop the critical-thinking skills and knowledge of appropriate academic vocabulary and style they need for their own writing. They also study contextualized grammar, which is linked to a dedicated handbook on writing effective sentences.
Advance takes students step by step through research and writing processes that they need for success in any field of study. Students analyze the different requirements and sections of academic articles and essays: abstracts, introductions, conclusions, citations, and references. They study different genres of academic writing and apply their learning in a series of increasingly complex writing and editing assignments.
