2.10 In Summary
Nancy Ami; Natalie Boldt; Sara Humphreys; Jemma Llewellyn; and Erin Kelly
You might have noticed something happening as you read through the sub-genres and conventions of academic writing – they overlap and intersect, don’t they? For example, a scientific report requires a hypothesis and a research essay requires a thesis. Both are testing ideas and need evidence to prove a point. We hope that what you’ve gained from this chapter is a healthy appreciation of just how much you already know and an understanding of how to approach assignments and projects that ask you to write in a new and unfamiliar way.
