Student guide to writing reports, critiques, summaries, etc.
on June 30, 2012
Good self-guided text for later high school and college writing. Distinguishes goals and purposes of various types of reports and offers step-by-step approaches. Chapters based on types of report, with later types building on earlier chapters, which include annotating texts, summaries, and paraphrases. Example reports included. Stresses thorough understanding of the source text derived from careful reading and analysis. End-of-chapter "reviews" provide quick reference for major points. Repetitive. Good on basics.
