Description - Academic Culture by Jean Brick
Academic Culture: a student's guide to studying at university is a much-needed and immensely practical resource. It identifies the attitudes, values and expectations shared by people who teach and study in universities, and the ways that this culture affects student and lecturer behaviour. Designed for students who are entering university for the first time, the new edition of this widely successful text equips readers with the knowledge and skills to improve their academic performance. Featuring helpful examples, 'skills practice' activities and 'word lists' in each chapter, Academic Culture develops student's ability to select and read appropriate resources, express their voice clearly, avoid plagiarism, structure their arguments, write essays and reports and actively participate in tutorials and seminars. New chapters address writing a range of electronic texts and planning assignments.
