Advance in Academic Writing   

Advance in Academic Writing has been designed specifically to help students make a successful transition to college and university studies in which they are required to write assignments in academic English. Advance integrates active and critical reading, critical thinking, academic vocabulary building, academic writing style, and effective sentence structure and grammar around authentic academic texts. As students respond to these texts, they are taken through the research and writing processes they will need to master to succeed in their respective fields of study.

Critical Reading 

Critical Reading provides a systematic introduction to the process of analyzing and evaluating a written text. Students develop critical reading skills through the analysis of texts taken from authentic sources (journals, newspapers, magazines and websites) and a variety of academic disciplines. Students are encouraged to develop their comprehension and vocabulary skills, while at the same time forming a reasoned assessment of the effectiveness and validity of the text. There are opportunities for the further research, as well as writing tasks designed to allow students to synthesize the materials they have read and reach an individual conclusion.
