Advanced Academic Writing III – Student Book (Third Edition)
Advanced Academic Writing III not only requires longer, more complex, and more deeply documented papers of students than Volumes I and II; it also provides an exploration of intellectually advanced attitudes and understandings that differentiate the most mature and outstanding students, teaching students the excitement of aggressive research and the pleasure of participating in a scholarly tradition that has ennobled research for centuries.
This volume focuses on achieving unity in style and originality in content. It contains more elaborate MLA formatting rules, more proofreaders’ marks, and forty more actual research paper comments, for a total of 120 comments for the students to absorb into their understanding of what makes a paper good and what to avoid to write well. The appendix includes an extensive list of punctuation, grammar, and usage rules and a list of common errors, all of which include and expand upon the content in the first two volumes in the series.
Students who complete Volume III will be well-prepared for any high school or college course that requires them to write papers, and they will shine in any formal writing tasks they might be asked to do in their professional lives.
NOTE: This is the third edition of this book, updated to adhere to the current MLA standards and to include an expanded section on citing and referencing electronic sources of information. We strongly recommend against using older editions of this book.
