  • 3.
    • College students begin to understand what academic writing really means only after they receive negative feedback on their work
    • To become a strong writer in college, you need to achieve a clear sense of two things:
      • The academic environment
      • The kinds of writing you’ll be doing in that environment
    What’s different about college writing?
  • 4.
    • College instructors are much more likely than high school teachers to:
      • assign writing
      • respond in detail to student writing – or not much at all
      • ask questions that cannot be dealt with easily in a fixed form like a five-paragraph essay
    • You may have learned only one kind of writing genre and now find you need to master other types of writing as well
