Native and nonnative speakers who need a concise guide to academic writing will appreciate this useful book. In Focus: Strategies for Academic Writers covers a wide variety of common academic writing tasks, including paragraphs, summaries, short essays, critical reviews, synthesis papers, argumentative papers, research papers, and impromptu response writing.

This textbook incorporates the process approach to writing and presents strategies for every aspect of the pre-writing and writing process. The Focus Approach helps students analyze the writing task at hand and clarify the goals of their projects, while the Power Writing Process allows students to complete the writing and revision of their assignments one step at a time. The textbook also addresses the problem of writer's block and provides techniques to help students cope with anxiety associated with writing.

This is the first book in a two-book IN FOCUS writing series.
