EAP Workshop: Academic English

Author: Brandon Cook

Based on Gerald Graff and Cathy Birkenstein’s “They Say/I Say”: The Moves that Matter in Academia (2006), this workshop presented several techniques non-native speakers can use to maximize their success when speaking and writing in English. It focused particularly on strategies to use in academic writing, including how to use secondary sources and how to situate one’s own work within broader academic discourse.
