- A good piece of academic writing is achieved through hard work and dedication. The hard work and dedication require the academic writing basic knowledge mastery. Yet, this is not an easy task for university students. This conceptual paper proposes how to model academic writing for university students in the Indonesian context. The paper, firstly, introduces the concept of academic writing. The concept of academic writing is more than just academic writing genres with the linguistic features. It also covers intellectual standards, fallacies in reasoning, and ethics of academic writing that realize the quality of the students' academic thinking. The concept, later on, guides a lecturer to modeling academic writing. The modeling stage is a part of the genre-based approach derived from systemic functional linguistics. Modeling is about how a lecturer should be able to model good academic writing and good critical thinking. An instance of model text is provided as an example of the modeling strategy.
