English for Academic Study: Extended Writing & Research Skills

EAS Extended Writing & Research Skills takes students step by step through the process of producing an extended piece of academic writing, helping them to develop the writing and research skills necessary for the task. Students make use of the source materials that accompany the course to produce their own piece of extended writing. They are then encouraged to use the strategies they have learned to produce a second piece of writing, within their own field of study.

The approach allows students to work independently, supported by detailed information and advice, as well we model answers provided in both the Course Book and the Instructor's Manual.

The units are organized as follows:

  • Introduction to the Skills of Extended Writing and Research
  • Using Evidence to Support Your Ideas
  • Structuring Your Project and Finding Information
  • Developing Your Project
  • Developing a Focus
  • Introductions, Conclusions, and Definitions
  • Incorporating Data and Illustrations
  • Preparing for Conference Presentations and Editing Your Work

Each unit has weblinks offering additional information and activities. A dedicated website, www.englishforacademicstudy.com, offers further instructor resources.

This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for academic study series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS Reading & Writing, EAS Listening, EAS Vocabulary, and EAS Speaking & Pronunciation.
