From Inquiry to Academic Writing helps students understand academic culture and its ways of reading, thinking, and writing. With a practical and now widely proven step-by-step approach, the text demystifies cross-curricular thinking and writing. An extensive thematic reader brings students into interdisciplinary debates that not only bear on their college careers but also reflect larger cultural issues that they will encounter outside the academy.

The fourth edition provides extensive coverage of academic habits and skills (reflection, summarization, synthesis, and visual analysis) and features more than 40% new readings grouped by interdisciplinary themes.
