English for Academic Study: Writing
This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Writing will help your students develop the academic writing skills they need to deal effectively with the written element of their academic study, as well as to develop other important skills such as reading research and critical thinking.
The units are organized as follows:
- Introduction to academic writing
- Sustainable energy
- The business of science
- Food security
- Human resource management
- Sustainable fashion
- The Tipping Point
Each unit explores a key aspect of writing and teaches it in the context of a specific topic area, e.g., Food security and Sustainable fashion. The tasks in each unit prepare students to write an essay that will consolidate the writing skills they are learning. Authentic texts in the accompanying EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book provide useful and interesting background information for each topic area covered. The Course Book includes unit summaries to give students a quick overview of what they have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to both writing skills and the topics covered in the units.
This book can be used in conjunction with the following books in the English for Academic Study (EAS) series, also published by Garnet Education: EAS: Reading & Writing Source Book, EAS: Reading, EAS: Extended Writing & Research Skills, EAS: Listening, EAS: Speaking, EAS: Vocabulary, EAS: Pronunciation and EAS: Grammar for Writing.

Anne Pallant authored the Writing volume in Garnet Education’s EAS series. Anne has varied experience of teaching English for Academic Purposes. She has been teaching on EAP courses at the Centre for Applied Language Studies since 1994 and is part of the EAP Management team. She was also Director of Studies at a Language School in Italy.
Amongst other qualifications, Anne has obtained an MSc in Teaching English as a Foreign Language from Aston University, a P.G.C.E from the University of Bristol and a Certificate in Online Education and Training from the Institute of Education, University of London.
Whilst Anne is interested in the teaching of all skills within EAP courses, her current focus is on the teaching of academic writing skills and the development of appropriate materials and methodology. She is especially interested in the teaching of critical thinking skills in academic writing. Anne is also concerned with the teaching of study and research skills to prospective postgraduate students, and developing methods and materials through which the needs of students from different disciplines can be met in one classroom. She is also interested in teaching content-based courses and is presently involved in teaching writing to scientists and social scientists by electronic delivery and ‘e-learning’ methodology.
“This high-quality series presents teaching materials underpinned by the latest research and honed by classroom feedback. Designed for teaching reading and writing either separately or in an integrated way (with the Source Book being essential for either option), it will help students develop important skills for tertiary settings in either case.”
Patrick Coleman (Lincoln University) for the TESOLANZ newsletter, September 2014
"The excellent English for Academic Study: Writing teacher’s book gives a detailed justification for the approach, help on managing the materials, as well as detailed notes and answers from the teaching units. This is very useful for both experienced EAP teachers and teachers who are new to EAP."
Andy Gillet for the ESP SIG Journal, Issue 41, April 2013
