Genres of Academic Writing
In this workshop, we’ll examine typical academic writing tasks and how to “read” your course assignments so you’ll deliver what’s really expected. Specifically, we’ll start with pre-and post-writing strategies, namely outlining and reverse outlines; we’ll then look at how to approach and construct some basic genres of academic writing: the reflection paper, the research paper introduction, the critical review and the literature review.
