"Intellectual Challenges in American Academic Writing

There are some intellectual challenges that all students are faced with when writing. Sometimes these challenges can almost seem like contradictions, particularly when addressing them within a single paper. For example, American teachers often instruct students to:

Develop a topic based on                                                                               Write something
what has already been said and written                        BUT                      new and original

                                                                                                                             Improve upon and/or disagree 
Rely on experts' and authorities' opinions                   BUT                      with those same opinions

Give credit to previous researchers                                BUT                     Make your own significant contribution                    

Improve your English to fit into a discourse
community by building upon what you hear/read      BUT                     Using your own words and your own voice"
