Adventures in Writing: An Introduction to the Writing Process with Readings, 4th ed., by Adam U. Kempler serves as a guide to students in introductory writing classes and is organized according to the writing process it promotes: prewriting, writing, and rewriting. It shows students how to think critically through active reading strategies and provides a sample of poems, short stories, and articles from diverse authors. This book instructs students how to write paragraphs and essays, including source-based papers that follow current MLA guidelines, and it concludes with a reference chapter for students who are learning English as a second language. Each chapter contains exercises for individuals, group activities, and writing assignments. A collaborative effort by students and instructors, this text is classroom tested, priced with students' budgets in mind, and printed on 100% post-consumer recycled paper.
