'Calling all lecturers: your jobs depend on books like this. You know that international students are a vital source of money for UK universities. Many of your masters courses - the ones you really enjoy teaching - would collapse tomorrow without students from around the world. This book is about how to help these students succeed.' - Times Higher Education 'A superb book which contains a wealth of ideas and strategies for use in the EAP classroom or for self-study. It should be compulsory reading for any student seeking to enter Higher Education in an English-language speaking country' - Alison Standring, EAP Co-ordinator, London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) 'Read, Research, Write definitely fills a gap... It is comprehensive, accessible and expertly researched and written, covering many essential aspects of academic competence. Equally useful as a course book, a resource book in a class library or as a reference book for students, every EAP teacher will want a class copy, every ESL student starting higher education should keep it on their desk!' - Dr Roger Nunn, Senior Associate Editor, the Asian EFL Journal, Associate Professor in Communication, Petroleum Institute, Dubai 'Read, Research, Write takes a novel approach to combining language and content so as to balance discipline-specific and generic language development. Valuable and engaging input on learning strategies and research skills for higher education is also included. I would recommend this book for teachers of EAP in a range of contexts' - David Palfreyman, Zayed University, Dubai This book is for students who have learnt English as a second (or third, or fourth) language, and are studying at an institution where English is the medium of instruction. Each of its 10 chapters focuses on a reproduced academic article on an aspect of English for academic purposes - students can therefore learn about language skills from the articles themselves as well as developing those skills in the activities and tasks which follow. Each chapter develops six strands of academic skills essential for successful study: reading; learning language/vocabulary; writing; researching; studying' and applying to your own subject. The detailed and focused activities and tasks will help you to: Make reasonable knowledge claims Become more aware of university culture and expectations Write according to academic standards Think critically and reflectively Respond to ideas in academic articles Document your work appropriately and avoid plagiarism.

Includes CD-Rom There are many 'Do-it-Yourself' manuals for students and young people experiencing study skills problems. However, if this group of young people could study these books then they would already have the skills necessary! In order to use a self help manual the student needs internal motivation, the ability to self-instruct from text and the ability to put the learned strategy into place... but these are the same attributes that these students find difficult. In this book, Pat Guy provides a series of lesson plans making up a taught study skills course for secondary schools, sixth forms, FE colleges and Pupil Referral Units. She shows the reader how to teach, through self assessment, practice and confidence-building techniques, the techniques and self management required to achieve independent study skills. All the activities and worksheets, including revision and exam tips for the students, are easily printable from the accompanying CD-rom. The sessions can be delivered by teachers, tutors, Learning Mentors, or anyone whose aim is to improve attendance and achievement in older students. Pat Guy has taught for over twenty years in LEA and secondary schools in Outer London, Northamptonshire, Birmingham and Bedfordshire as a class teacher, subject teacher, SEN support, SENCO and advisory teacher.
