Foundational Skills for Transitioning Writers: A 3 Part Series

No comments
Academic writing often seems to be a language of its own. On top of having to ensure proper page formatting and citation style, scholarly writing relies on a set of skills that work to develop and support ideas in an academically sound way. This goes beyond having professional sounding sentences! You may be returning to school after time off, or perhaps you have been back for a while but still feel out of step with your writing. Our three-part blog series on foundational writing skills can help. Join us in this examination of foundational concepts of scholarly writing.

In this series, we look at foundational skills that will help any scholarly writer feel more confident in their ability to converse in the language and form of academic writing.

Here are the posts in our foundational concepts for transitioning writers series:

  • Part One: Using Evidence Claire explains what evidence is as well as how to include it in your work to support your ideas
  • Part Two: Point of View Veronica gives a tour of first and their person points of view, explaining how and when to use each in academic writing
  • Part Three: Establishing Context Nicole reminds us that our readers may lack the same background understanding as us, and she shows was to include contextual information
