• Praise from Reviewers

    An Insider's Guide to Academic Writing’s emphasis on building transferrable skills by which students analyze and understand the specifics of discipline-specific customs, conventions, and conversations moves FYC into the twenty-first century.  — Sonia Apgar Begert, Olympia College

    The SLR [Structure/Language/Reference] framework represents one of the major strengths of the book. It is a unique approach to identifying how presentation of information and use of language varies across disciplinary communities. Polina Chemishanova, University of North Carolina—Pembroke

    An Insider’s Guide skillfully introduces students to knowledge and skills they need to succeed as academic writers and researchers. Instructors who teach [WID-based composition courses] and especially those who are new to these courses would find this text reassuring and informative.  Alice Myatt, University of Mississippi

    One of the strengths is the “Insider’s Views” from professors in non-English disciplines, making writing in the disciplines real and urgent to students.  Hui Wu, University of Texas at Tyler

    The style makes complex ideas readily accessible for college freshman. Moreover, the text discusses the various paths through higher education and directly addresses students at community colleges and various types of colleges and universities.  Jessica Saxon, Craven Community College
