A brief rhetoric focusing on the key strategies that any academic writer needs to know—summary, synthesis, analysis, and critique.


A Sequence for Academic Writing  focuses on the critical reading and writing strategies that readers and students need in order to thoughtfully interpret and incorporate source material into their own papers.
