Description

Academic Culture introduces students to the demands of university study in a clear and accessible way, and helps them understand what is expected of them. Chapters equip students with the skills to recognise opinions, positions and bias in academic texts from a range of genres, think critically, develop their own ‘voice’, and refer to others’ ideas in an appropriate way. Having established a foundation for successful university study, the final part provides guidance on approaching different forms of academic writing, including essays, reports, reflective assignments and exam papers.
Featuring helpful ‘word lists’, examples, ‘think about this’ reflective prompts and ‘skills practice’ activities in each chapter, this bestselling book is an essential resource for all students new to university-level study.
