Week 5

Dear Attendees of ACWRI Course,

In the first part of the present chapter, we are going to concentrate on the second “overarching pattern” in academic writing, that is, problem-to-solution (PS) movement. Regarding this pattern, Swales and Feak (1994) indicate that the latter movement could be useful particularly for the writing of critiques and introductory sections of your M.A. theses. 

As you may recognise, unlike general-specific (GS) texts in which the writer adopts a more descriptive and expository style, PS texts demand an argumentative and evaluative approach to writing. Besides these distinctive features, we are going to explore process descriptions which will be of utmost importance especially in writing the methodology / the method chapter of your academic works.

Let us make sure that you have the assigned reading material  (w5-ch3-part-1)for the following lecture with you.
I wish you a very pleasant and productive day.
I hope to see you all at 10.15 a.m. on Monday (October 17).
Best regards,
Y. Aksoyalp.
