Summary

Broadening the traditional notion of undergraduate research, this English composition text thoroughly covers the skills essential for developing a research paper: analytical reading, synthesizing, paraphrasing, and summarizing. Presenting the process of research in a practical sequence, the authors illustrate each stage of the process with examples of student and professional writing. Using a flexible and goal-oriented approach, the authors integrate coverage of writing, reading, and research with topical, interdisciplinary readings and a supportive research handbook. Unlike comparable books, Veit and Gould's WRITING, READING, AND RESEARCH, Eighth Edition leads off with a sample student paper in the first chapter, providing a foundation for students as they progress through each step of the research and writing process.
