Essay Writing for Students, now in its 3rd edition, has preserved the original serious, yet practical approach to academic writing.
Particular attention is paid to the central tasks of analysing a topic, reading, researching, planning, drafting and editing the final version of an essay or report.
This book has proved invaluable to students at university and TAFE level, for final year secondary school students preparing for tertiary study and for all the staff who teach them.
John Clanchy and Brigid Ballard have taught in secondary schools, universities and teachers' colleges. They have been members of curriculum committees and examining bodies, and have an intimate knowledge of what is required at each level of study in these institutions.
