English for Academic Study: Extended Writing and Research Skills This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Extended Writing & Research Skills will help develop the practical skills your students need to tackle extended essays and projects and encourage the development of an independent approach to studying. The units are organized as follows: * Introduction to extended writing and research * Using evidence to support your ideas * Sourcing information for your project * Developing your project * Developing a focus * Introductions, conclusions and definitions * Incorporating data and illustrations * Preparing for conference presentations The units take students step by step through the process of producing an extended piece of academic writing.
