Flexible and goal-oriented, this text integrates instruction in reading, writing, and research with topical, interdisciplinary readings and concludes with a research handbook. Writing, Reading, and Research thoroughly covers analytical reading, paraphrasing, summarizing, and synthesizing--skills essential for developing a research paper. Each stage of the process is illustrated with examples of student and professional writing. Unlike comparable books, Writing, Reading, and Research leads off with two sample student papers in the early chapters, giving students a clear idea of the final goal as they progress through each step of the research and writing process.
