Book Description :

This book is for graduate students--and others--who want to become more productive writers. It's especially written for those who want to: • increase their motivation, focus, and persistence to move a project to completion • overcome procrastination and perfectionistic tendencies • reduce (or write in spite of) their anxiety and fear of writing • manage their time, work, energy (and advisor) for greater productivity The process or craft of sustained writing is not a matter that’s taught to undergraduate or graduate students as part of their studies, leaving most at sea about how to start a practice that is central to a career in academe and vital in many other professional occupations. This book grew out of conversations Jan Allen has held with her graduate students for over 30 years and reflects the fruit of the writing workshops and boot camps she has conducted at three universities, her own and numerous colleagues’ experiences with writing and advising, as well as the feedback she receives from her popular Productive Writer listserv. While Jan Allen recognizes that writing is not an innate talent for most of us, she demonstrates that it is a process based on skills which we can identify, learn, practice and refine. She focuses both on the process and habits of writing as well as on helping you uncover what kind of writer are you, and reflect on your challenges and successes. With a light touch and an engaging sense of humor, she proposes strategies to overcome procrastination and distractions, and build a writing practice to enable you to become a more productive and prolific writer. Jan Allen proposes that you read one of her succinct chapters – each devoted to a specific strategy or writing challenge – each day, or once a week. When you find one that increases your concentration, motivation or endurance, make it a habit. Try it for two weeks, charting the resulting increased productivity. It will become part of your repertoire of writing and productivity tools to which you can progressively add.

Book Description :

This volume teaches academics and graduate students how to write seductive academic prose by learning a literacy rarely taught in academic writing or style handbooks: to use literary devices and figures of speech to meet ideals of stylish communication; and how these ideals and supposed ‘literary’ techniques serve academic readers and writers. Part one explores the persistent problem of the bad academic writing style called ‘academese’ and argues stylish academic writers avoid it by writing with figures of speech. Part two teaches and illustrates figures of speech seductive writers write into academic prose to convey the music and rhythms of good speech, cohesion, coherence and storytelling, and the personality and passions of the author. Part three argues the academy will not heal itself of academese until academic writing pedagogies teach students to care enough for their readers to write with figures of speech that craft seductive academic writing.

Book Description :

Through conducting an ethnographic study about doctoral students from traditionally underrepresented groups who are learning to conduct ethnographic research, this volume offers unique insight into the challenges and experiences through which these students develop their skills and identities as qualitative researchers. Foregrounding the stories and perspectives of students from minority backgrounds including Latinx, Black, differently abled, and queer students, Graduate Students Becoming Qualitative Researchers identifies how the process of learning to conduct ethnographic research underpins doctoral students’ success, confidence, and persistence in the academy. Chapters follow students during a one-year ethnographic research course during which they learn about ethnography, and also conduct observations, write field notes, interview participants, and gather artifacts. Offering important pedagogical insights into how ethnography and academic writing are communicated, the text also tackles questions of access and diversity within scholarship and highlights barriers to first-generation and minoritized students' success, including impostor syndrome, stereotype vulnerability, and access to time, knowledge, and capital. This volume will prove valuable to doctoral students, postgraduate researchers, scholars, and educators conducting qualitative research across the fields of education and rhetoric, as well as the humanities and social sciences. It will also appeal to those interested in multiculturalism and diversity within the education sector.

Book Description :

Abstract: This study investigated graduate level Japanese students' perceptions of academic English writing in contrast with academic Japanese writing. Based on data collected from a detailed questionnaire and through in-depth one-on-one interviews with 20 Japanese graduate students who had studied in discipline-specific written discourse at CSULB, the study investigated their perceptions of differences in the rhetorical features used in the two languages' writing systems, especially pertaining to the overall essay organizational structure, the creation of coherence, awareness of the audience, and some other elements of essay writing. The study also explored Japanese writers' awareness of characteristics of English academic writing constructed through their intensive involvement with English academic writing. The instruction provided in their English writing classes played a significant role in forming these Second Language (L2) writers' perceptions of English writing. With rigorous writing practice in English as a Second Language (ESL) classes and intensive essay writing required in graduate courses, these L2 writers have formed some specific views of English writing and its rhetorical use. The overall results showed that participants perceived writing in both languages as being distinct. Their perceptions also included a set of simplified rhetorical features and emphasized utilitarian rhetorical modes of English academic writing. Findings showed that some writers perceived English writing to be rather easy because they felt it allowed the writer to merely follow a framework; English writing required less of writers' skills or creativity. However, other students recognized that English academic writing does not follow a framework, but they felt that their previous writing instruction had not fully prepared them for academic writing at the graduate level.

The authors of Academic Writing for Graduate Students have written a book for the next level of second language writing. English in Today's Research World offers students a very high level of writing instruction, with a specific focus on the projects students undertake--such as dissertations and conference abstracts--at the end of their university work or as they begin careers in research or academia. In addition to instruction on writing for publication, English in Today's Research World provides needed advice on applications, recommendations, and requests--types of communications that are particularly vulnerable to influences from national cultural expectations and conventions and that, therefore, place the NNS writer at increased disadvantage. The text is both a reference manual and a course book, so that researchers can continue to use the book after they have completed their formal education. New ESL/EFL teachers can use English in Today's Research World as a reference book for themselves or as a teaching aid in the classroom.

"When is it the best time to publish?""What are drafting and freewriting and why are they important?""Do you need to be very knowledgeable to publish?""Why are some students more successful in publishing than others?""Why am I afraid to write?"These are some questions that you will find answers to in "The Graduate Student As Writer: Encouragement for the Budding Scholar." As graduate students, you may feel the pressure to write and publish. You may compare yourselves to peers who have already published. Or you want to improve your chances of finding an academic position after graduation. However, the process of writing and publishing is not straightforward and seldom discussed amongst students, leaving many to stumble along and figure things out alone.If you are looking for some heart-to-heart talk from one graduate student to another on the mindset, skills, and process that are needed for effective and efficient writing and publishing, this book is for you.This book simplifies the writing process into four stages: Drafting, Feedback, Rewriting and Editing. It maintains that a graduate student is not merely training to be an academic, but is also a writer and artist. It also addresses misconceptions about writing that can hinder your progress, such as thinking that you must have it all together before you can begin.This book is written with the graduate student from a Social Science field in mind, but students of all fields will find its contents applicable.If you feel discouraged that you're not making progress in your writing, this book with chapters in bite-sized readings will encourage you and give you insights into your fears and inspiration to uplift you.Chapters of the book include: "Writing as a Tool", "Begin Writing at Every Stage of your Graduate Studies", "Start Small Wherever You Are", "Fear of Feedback", and "Value and Enjoy the Process, Not Just the Outcome."

Book Description :

The Teaching Writing series publishes user-friendly writing guides penned by authors with publishing records in their subject matter. Blair's practical book gives graduate students the tools they need to successfully plan, write, and defend their thesis or dissertation. Each chapter addresses a rite of passage common to most graduate programs: selecting a methodology, conducting a literature search, carrying out research, analyzing data, and preparing for a thesis defense. Combining years of supervisory experience with up-to-date research, Blair addresses issues important to graduate students that are often left out of these guides, including how to navigate the ethics review process and avoid problems related to academic integrity, such as plagiarism, how to select and prepare for a productive meeting with a supervisor, and how to establish an academic track record by presenting research at conferences and publishing in academic journals. Writing a Graduate Thesis or Dissertation offers much more than its title suggests. It is a thorough and succinct guide to succeeding in graduate school, appropriate for thesis and research methods courses, and a must-read for graduate students across the disciplines. "Like a series of productive meetings with a trusted advisor, each chapter of this text provides practical information and sound insight, thoughtfully organized and generously shared." - Christine Marme Thompson, Professor of Art Education, School of Visual Arts, Pennsylvania State University "This will become a 'must-have' volume for every graduate student's book shelf, with advice for every step of the thesis journey." - Anne Lavack, Professor of Marketing, School of Business and Economics, Thompson Rivers University "More than simply comprehensive, this work includes information and considerations that are rarely addressed in other guides, including information related to selecting supervisors and alternative forms of research methodologies and format styles." - Adrienne Boulton-Funke, Assistant Professor, Art and Design, Missouri State University Lorrie Blair is a Professor of Art Education at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec.
