It's no wonder that students resist the conventional research paper and that teachers burn out on its routines; its formal, stodgy, and rigidly academic boundaries allow for little deviation or creative expression. Indeed, the time has come to brush the dust off research-writing pedagogy and reimagine it into the twenty-first century classroom with fresh approaches that breathe life into both the papers themselves and the instruction that supports them.
In Research Writing Revisited educators will find the alternatives they've been looking for to teach the research paper anew. Zemliansky and Bishop have not only gathered innovative teachers to present a book full of successful and engaging research-writing alternatives, they've also asked them to plumb their file drawers and pull out assignment descriptions, syllabi, rubrics, and student examples that illustrate exactly how their ideas and assignments look and feel in practice. Best yet, these useful, authentic teaching tools are available for download on the book's companion website www.boyntoncook.com/researchwritingrevisited.
With the variety of assignments in Research Writing Revisited and the documentation available at its online companion, you'll have everything you need to resituate the research paper for your students and yourself. Turn away from academic summarization and compilation and toward contemporary, energetic, multifaceted, multimedia activities that result in satisfying writings of different genres, formats, and purposes. Read Research Writing Revisited and think outside the research-paper box.
