Bailey, S. (2014). Effective Academic Writing – A Handbook for International Students. London: Routledge. 4th Edition.
Faculty members and instructors are concerned about writing skills and competencies. This book helps address this issue and, while targeted at international students, it is relevant for all students irrespective of background or level of study. Practical, helpful and focused, it is part of Worth Reading as it is full of practical activities and suggestions for writing improvement – there is also a companion website with more activities and opportunities for learning. Rather than fret about the writing skills of students, this book helps faculty members and instructors support improved writing.
