If you have read the first three chapters and done some of the exercises, you should understand about the five Primary Purposes of academic writing and the 13 Genre Families.
What is your Primary Purpose? When you have decided, go onto the next page.
|1. Demonstrating Knowledge and Understanding|
|2. Building Research Skills|
|3. Developing Powers of Independent Reasoning|
|4. Writing for Oneself and Others|
|5. Preparing for Professional Practice|
If you have not read the first three chapters and, therefore, cannot identify your Primary Purpose, we suggest that you have a look at those pages: Introduction.
