Essentials of Academic Writing is an essay-level book focused exclusively on writing academic papers. It is organized around three principles: a thorough focus on the fundamentals of writing academic papers; a cross-disciplinary approach to writing that emphasizes the importance of writing skills beyond the English course; and a focus on reading skills as the underlying foundation of a good critical thinker. One of the hallmarks of this book is the use of a single sample student essay, from start to finish, as an annotated example of the process used by a developing writer. From the brainstorming diagram in the first chapter to the final draft at the end of Part One, students are given a strong, consistent model to emulate.
