En Carrera: Escritura y Lectura de Textos Académicos y Profesionales

  • STEM, Pedagogy, WID, Writing

Edited by Lucía Natale

En carrera: escritura y lectura de textos académicos y profesionales offers a critical description of some of the genres involved in student’s academic and professional development in undergraduate higher education: academic review, essay, state of the art, case study, product evaluation, procedures manual, and social intervention project. The book also offers guides for understanding and quoting complex texts. In this sense, it can be useful for professionals, university students, and professors who are interested in including discipline-specific writing skills in their courses. 

The book's chapters are pedagogically-oriented: they explore the context of circulation, the goals, and the structure of each genre; they suggest strategies for text planning, elaboration and revision; and they include real, commented examples and exercises based on experts' and students' samples. Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the book is its composition process: each chapter was written collaboratively by a writing professor and a lecturer of the specific subject matter the genre belongs to. Therefore, readers can gain access to a comprehensive account that articulates the insights of the experienced scholar and the analysis of the language expert.

This rhetorical, functional, and disciplinary-situated perspective is the basis behind the Program to Develop Academic Literacy across the Curriculum (PRODEAC), installed in the Degree Cycle of all the degrees at the Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento (Buenos Aires Argentina) since 2005.

The entire volume and individual chapters can be viewed below. You can also view the book on its website at Universidad Nacional de General Sarmiento. An article (in English) that describes the PRODEAC can be downloaded from the WAC Clearinghouse at http://wac.colostate.edu/docs/books/wpww/chapter2.pdf.
