Essay Writing is a student guide with a mission: to enable students to write better essays by demystifying the essay-writing process. In contextualising essay writing within the larger university experience -communication, the academic culture, different learning styles and approaches and learning and teaching at university - this book helps students to study more independently, learn more meaningfully and to write first-class essays. Essay Writing explains why essays are set and demonstrates how best to approach them. The book offers practical, in-depth guidance on each of the stages of the essay writing process - planning, drafting and editing - and relates them to the important sub-skills of information-gathering, reading academic texts, how to get the most out of lectures, referencing and citations, fluency and appropriateness of style and language. Essay Writing is an easy to use, practical book designed to help students hone their essay writing skills and get the grade they deserve. MunLing Shields is currently Senior Lecturer in the School of Languages and International Studies at the University of Central Lancashire. She has extensive experience of teaching personal development and study skills and supporting students with their writing in a wide range of subjects.
