Newly Released Book Provides Writing Strategies To English Students

Dr. Erin Knoche Laverick’s new book, Learning to Write for Academic Success in Undergraduate and Graduate Schools, provides a roadmap for students to follow while in higher education English courses. 

English language instructors will find the textbook user-friendly in regard to planning their daily lessons because it includes useful activities that can easily be completed in a traditional fifty-minute class period. This book helps students to write a wide range of writing assignments, from article reviews and literature reviews, to annotated bibliographies, and argumentative research papers.

“Using the writing process and the graphic organizers provided in the textbook, students are taken step-by-step through the process of writing different genres of essays,” Dr. Laverick says. “With a heavy research component, reading strategies are also included, so students can best learn how to read academic writing and implement it into their research writing."
