ACADEMIC WRITING. A PERSPECTIVE FROM ENGLISH TEACHERS’ TRAINING COLLEGE FOR WRITING AT THE UPPER EDUCATIONAL LEVEL
How to encourage critical thinking, how to encourage reflexive gestures, how to encourage the presence of a personal voice, what it is and how to build an investigational problem, how to elaborate and develop hypotheses, how to put these in a dialogue and contrast it with critical and theoretical literature, how to conclude research work without running out of ideas from the research subject.
This is a series of questions which academic writing has asked those who elaborate our daily work material: Letters, Language and Literature teachers; Foreign Language teachers; translators… In the case of English Teachers’ Training College, this task is usually materialized in academic essays, one of the most frequent evaluation techniques, though one of the most feared ones. These pages, sensitive to the problematic associated with such practice, do not aim at overcoming such inevitable difficulties. Alternatively, this book, written in English and in Spanish, attempts to reflect upon them and propose work approaches which help recover the rich complexity of writing for addressing the genre of academic writing.
* The book has also been written in Spanish
