    Preface This textbook has been developed since 2014, and it was designed in accordance with the course description of the EG 3183 English Report Writing Course. This subject is required for third-year English major students, who have already passed these courses - English Structures I, English Structures II, Basic Writing in English, English Essay Writing, and Critical Reading. The textbook aims to enable the students to write an academic report effectively through various processes, tasks and samples, so it is made up of eight chapters. The first five chapters offer essential techniques of report writing while the last three chapters regard writing a report through outlining, drafting, revising and editing. Each chapter  provides task guidelines. Appendix 1 particularly reviews English writing sentences the students have previously learned since they were in their first year of study, and rating criteria for report writing are also included in Appendix 2, so that the students are aware of what to expect.  Noparat Tananuraksakul The author July 2019  Table of Contents Preface I Contents II Chapter One: Introduction to Report Writing 1.1 Definition of a Report 1 1.2 Techniques of Writing a Report 2 1.2.1 Choosing a Topic 2 Task 1: Key Words, Content Words and Research Position 4 1.2.2 Using Formal Language 5 Task 2: Formality in Writing 9 References 10 Task Guidelines 10 Chapter Two: Data Collection 2.1 Sources for Data Collection 12 2.2 Collecting Data through Note-Taking Log 13 Task 1: Collecting Data 16 Task 2: Data Collection (Required Note-Taking Log) 18 References 20 Task Guidelines 20 Chapter Three: Writing with References 3.1 Writing with References 21 3.1.1 Paraphrasing 22 3.1.2 Summarizing 23 3.1.3 Direct quoting 26 3.1.4 Language for Integrating Indirect and Direct Quotations 28 Task 1: Writing with References 30 References 32 Task Guidelines 33 Chapter Four: Writing a List of References 4.1 Writing a List of References or Bibliography 34 Task 1: A List of References 37 References 40 Task Guidelines 41  III Contents (Continued) Chapter Five: Writing an Academic Paragraph 5.1 Non-academic Paragraph 42 A Sample Non-academic Paragraph 43 5.2 Academic Paragraphs 44 Sample Academic Paragraphs 45 Task 1: Writing your Academic Paragraphs   47   References 48 Task Guidelines 48 Chapter Six: Prewriting a Report 6.1 Prewriting a Report 49 6.1.1 The Outline Format 49 A Sample Outline 51 Task 1: Outlining Your Report 52 References 53 Task Guidelines 54 Chapter Seven: Writing a Report 7.1 Writing Your Report 55 7.1.1 Writing Your First Part (Introduction) 56 Sample Introductory Paragraphs 56 Task 1: Writing Your First Part 57 7.1.2 Writing Your Second Part (Body) 59 Sample Body Paragraphs 59 Task 2: Writing Your Second Part 62 7.3 Writing Your Third Part (Conclusion and List of References) 64 Sample Conclusion and References 64 Task 3: Writing Your Third Part 66 References 68 Task Guidelines 70 Chapter Eight: Post-Writing a Report 8.1 Revising and Editing 71 8.2 Using a Checklist 71 Report Checklist 72 A Sample Report Using the Checklist 73 8.3 A Sample Final Report 80 Task 1: Sample Outline VS Sample Final Report 85 Task 2: Writing Your Final Report 86  IV Contents (Continued) Bibliography 88   Appendices Appendix 1: Sentence Writing 95 Appendix 2: Rating Criteria for Report Writing 104 Tables Table 1: Common hedging languages in academic writing 8 Table 2: Sample note-taking log about fluency in foreign languages and vital 14 for employment opportunities Table 3: Examples of a paraphrase taken from Table 2 22 Table 4: Examples of a summary taken from Table 2 23 Table 5: Errors of paraphrasing 24 Table 6: Errors of summarizing 25 Table 7: Examples of a direct quotation taken from Table 2 26 Table 8: Expressing voice in academic writing 1 45 Table 9: Expressing voice in academic writing 2 46 Table 10: Text that needs citations 46 Table 11: Compound sentences combined with coordinating conjunctions 100 Table 12: Compound sentences combined with conjunctive adverbs 101 Table 13: Examples of students’ writing errors and their re-written versions 103 List of Figures Figure 1: Paragraph components 43 Figure 2: Introductory paragraph 55 Figure 3: Patterns and usage of ‘consider’ 98 Figure 4: Verb patterns and usages of ‘consider’ and ‘regard’ 99
