Overview

This text is specifically designed to help nonnative graduate students improve their academic writing in English. It consists of eight linked units plus three appendixes. The units start with writing at the paragraph level and conclude with the construction of a research paper. The genre-based approach allows detailed attention to the purposes, structures, and styles of particular kinds of texts. In addition, the approach is strategic; it assumes that graduate students need to write in ways that enhance their credibility in the eyes of their instructors. Academic Writing for Graduate Students does not neglect areas of academic grammar and vocabulary found to be troublesome for nonnative speakers of English. These are handled through "Language Focus" sections so placed in the text that they tie in with the wider rhetorical objectives. The Commentary includes explanations of and discussions about the activities in each unit of the textbook. Model or sample answers are provided when appropriate.
