Summary: This highly readable, essay-level text with readings focuses on the purposes of writing - to reflect, inform, persuade, and speculate. The text is organized into eight thematic chapters which present starting points for the evolution of ideas into papers and lend context to rhetorical instruction. Each chapter teaches the complete writing process, from prewriting and drafting to rewriting and editing. Extended examples from student papers and a direct, conversational ...show more tone help students understand and apply the principles of writing.

  • Elements of the writing process are covered in detail. In addition to teaching grammar and mechanics, each chapter highlights a different prewriting, drafting, rewriting, or editing strategy to allow students to explore various writing options. Each chapter contains 16 writing assignments.
  • New! Fifty percent of the reading selections are new and two new chapter themes focus on issues of identity and the media. The Second Edition includes even more models of academic writing.
  • New! "Peer Response Sheets" facilitate feedback from peer response groups and provide questions for both readers and writers, with an emphasis on the four primary writing aims.
  • New! "Writing with Computers" activities in each chapter offer suggestions and strategies for using the computer as a writing tool. The text teaches students how to use the Internet for research and contains examples of electronic documentation.
  • New! More collaborative writing exercises and "Writing Together" assignments encourage students to help each other as they prewrite, draft, rewrite, and edit their essays.
  • Sample, "in progress" student essays are used as examples for the prewriting, drafting, and rewriting sections of the chapters.
