Description: The Blueprints academic writing series offers a unique combination of instruction in the rhetorical processes, while focusing on paraphrasing, summarizing, and synthesizing. This dual focus helps students develop good writing habits and avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism. Additional Writing Assignments from Academic Disciplines allows them to practice their new skills on the types of writing tasks they will face outside the ESL classroom. Engaging readings on academic topics, ranging from DNA testing and computer programs to literary analysis, tea ceremonies, and marketing health and fitness, increase students' comprehension and familiarize them with writing in an academic setting. A complementary web site offers accompanying exercises to reinforce the writing practice, mechanics, and grammar covered in the texts.
