Read, Research and Write: Academic Skills for ESL Students in Higher Education by Caroline BrandtThis book is for students who have learned English as a second (or third, or forth) language and are studying at an institution where English is the medium of instruction. Each of the book's 10 chapters focuses on a reproduced academic article on an aspect of English for academic purposes. Therefore, students can learn about language skills from the articles themselves, as well as develop those skills in the activities and tasks which follow. A companion website features a collection of articles from a variety of different sources related to the topics in each of the book's 10 articles.
Student's Guide to Writing College Papers by Kate L. TurabianStudents of all levels need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paper--and for decades Kate L. Turabian's Student's Guide to Writing College Papers has helped them to develop this critical skill. For its fifth edition, Chicago has reconceived and renewed this classic work for today's generation. Addressing the same range of topics as Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations but for beginning writers and researchers, this guide introduces students to the art of formulating an effective argument, conducting high-quality research with limited resources, and writing an engaging class paper. This new edition includes fresh examples of research topics, clarified terminology, more illustrations, and new information about using online sources and citation software. It features updated citation guidelines for Chicago, MLA, and APA styles, aligning with the latest editions of these popular style manuals. It emphasizes argument, research, and writing as extensions of activities that students already do in their everyday lives. It also includes a more expansive view of what the end product of research might be, showing that knowledge can be presented in more ways than on a printed page. Friendly and authoritative, the fifth edition of Student's Guide to Writing College Papers combines decades of expert advice with new revisions based on feedback from students and teachers. Time-tested and teacher-approved, this book will prepare students to be better critical thinkers and help them develop a sense of inquiry that will serve them well beyond the classroom.
