Genres across the Disciplines: Student Writing in Higher Education

    Research output: Book/ReportBook

    Abstract

    Genres across the Disciplines presents the first detailed descriptive account of assessed writing in UK higher education sectors across more than 30 disciplines, from first year undergraduate to postgraduate level. The authors apply a sophisticated framework to examine how the core functions of explaining, developing arguments, reporting research and preparing for professional life shape the writing produced by university students.
