Burns, Tom; Sinfield, Sandra
Paul Chapman Publishing
This handbook has a special focus on higher education orientation, that is it is designed to make transparent the forms and processes of academic discourse and to introduce a variety of strategies that enable students to become successfully inducted into academic practice, especially within higher education. The majority of the chapters contain suggestions for teaching practice and particular activities that, with the photocopiable resources, can be delivered straight from the page to supplement subject teaching at any level. This is designed to be a very practical handbook and it is intended that tutors could teach a particular topic using the lesson plans, resources and lecture notes that are given here either as complete source material or as a detailed guide or introduction to a specific topic.
