ENGLISH 109W Literature Review Background: Reviewing scholarly sources about writing in the disciplines is one way to become informed about academic writing contexts that you may encounter during upper-division coursework. To develop knowledge of disciplinary writing contexts relevant to your undergraduate work, this assignment asks you to review journal articles about an undergraduate writing issue in one academic field or in several related fields. Upon completion, your review should give undergraduate readers an insider’s view of scholarly discussion about a specific undergraduate writing issue and should conclude with a hypothesis or question that you would like to investigate through field research at Sacramento State. Prompt: What related claims do peer-reviewed articles make about an important question or problem regarding undergraduate writing in your academic field or in related fields? Introduce a relevant question or problem addressed in 3 or 4 journal articles, explain the arguments those articles make about the issue, and discuss how your review brought up a hypothesis or question about an undergraduate writing context on our campus. Text Features • • • • • • • • Introduce the question or problem to be discussed in your review Explain how that issue relates to writing in one or more academic fields Explain claims three secondary sources make about that issue; discuss o the purpose of each source o any field research reported in each source o evidence supporting each source’s claim(s) Include sources that directly address undergraduate writing in the disciplines Organize your supporting paragraphs to reflect how the articles are related Summarize, paraphrase, and/or quote each article to support your review Discuss a closing question or insight that relates the articles reviewed to an undergraduate writing context on our campus Use an appropriate citation style Process Steps • • • • • • Browse sources that address writing issues relevant to your undergraduate work Select one or more sources that discuss intriguing questions or problems Read the initial source(s) and locate additional related sources Choose an appropriate citation style Focus a rough draft on explaining three articles Polish your draft based on peer and instructor feedback In our current times, considering instructional as well as curricular features that can support students in developing literacy in the context of science is an issue that cannot be taken lightly. This has led to different authors coming up with various journal articles to address the issue in undergraduate writing. For instance, Katherine, Kimi and Wesley in their article, ‘Learning to Write like a Scientist: A Writing-Intensive Course for Microbiology/Health Science Students,’ based on the Journal of Microbiology & biology education, 2018, Vol.19 (1) focus on science-specific writing skills along with disciplinary course content aimed at helping health science students learn the tools as well as conventions of expert communication. The authors argue that teaching science writing by means of allowing students to write ‘fiction’ will boost the confidence of these students. These authors are not alone in addressing this issue as Nancy through the article, ‘Science in Writing Workshop: Enhancing Student’s Science and Literacy Learning,’ in the Journal Reading Teacher, 2017, Vol.70 (4), talks about how students are highly expected to engage in reading as well as writing activities across disciplines as the means to strengthen their literacy skills in all content areas. The author in this describes the value of utilizing writers’ workshop to develop and refine understanding through authentic writingfocused learning experiences. Again, through the Journal of Science, Apr 23, 2010, Vol.328 (5977), in the article, ‘Supporting Students in Developing Literacy in Science, Joseph talks of how reading, writing, as well as oral communication are critical practices when it comes to participation in a global society. The author in this article gives various suggestions such as offering opportunities for students to utilize science ideas. Based on the information of these articles, I concur with the post of one student that scientific writing is increasingly recognized as a key component when it comes to undergraduate science education.
