English for Academic Study: Writing
This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Writing will help your students develop the academic writing skills they need to deal effectively with the written element of their academic study, as well as to develop other important skills such as reading research and critical thinking.
The units are organized as follows:
- Introduction to academic writing
- Sustainable energy
- The business of science
- Food security
- Human resource management
- Sustainable fashion
- The Tipping Point
Each unit explores a key aspect of writing and teaches it in the context of a specific topic area, e.g., Food security and Sustainable fashion. The tasks in each unit prepare students to write an essay that will consolidate the writing skills they are learning. Authentic texts in the accompanying EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book provide useful and interesting background information for each topic area covered. The Course Book includes unit summaries to give students a quick overview of what they have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to both writing skills and the topics covered in the units.
This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for Academic Study (EAS) series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book, EAS: Reading, EAS: Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS: Listening, EAS: Speaking, EAS: Vocabulary, EAS: Pronunciation and EAS: Grammar for Writing.
