Summary: For paragraph to essay level courses in Developmental English. Based on the belief that students should be reading, writing, and learning grammar at the same time -- rather than separately -- this text offers a wide range of materials that meet the multiple needs of a basic writing course. Three books in one, it provides (1) a comprehensive writing skills text ; (2) a workbook for developmental English classes; and (3) an anthology of acclaimed reading selections ann ...show moreotated for basic writing students. It also contains a vocabulary builder with vocabulary exercises based on words in the readings.

NEW--Contains new readings, including works by:

Mohandas Ghandi.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
Richard Wright.
Maya Angelou.
Frank McCourt, Pulitzer-prize-winning author of Angela's Ashes. NEW--Features two new chapters for ESL students:

English Idioms for ESL Writers -- presents and tests common English idioms arranged by category (family, times, dates, etc.).

Advice for ESL Writers -- Use of progressive verbs, commonly confused words, use of articles. Concentrates on forming questions, using adjectives (especially where English usage differs from usage in other languages), and dealing with singular and plural amounts.

NEW--Contains a new chapter on Building a Sentence.

Emphasizes creating good sentences rather than on being able to label parts such as participial phrases.

Expands material on sentence combining using various kinds of coordination and subordination.

NEW--Features a revised chapter on sentence style.

Deals not only with problems of faulty parallelism, but with the general problem of sentence coherence.

Explores a number of real-world problems, such as confusing redundancy, awkward repetition, and awkward shifts in focus (from "they" to "one" to "you," for example) that students sometimes make.

NEW--Includes a streamlined section on the grammar of sentence structure -- with more concrete examples and practice in the basic areas of avoiding fragments and run-on sentences.
NEW--Reorganizes the unit on Verbs:

Covers "confusing verb forms" as "irregular verbs" in the chapter on the past tense.

NEW--Offers expanded coverage of planning and writing the essay:

Discusses many ways to create ideas, including clustering, freewriting and mapping.

Explores different types of composition -- persuasive, descriptive, analytical, compare-contrast.

Emphasizes writing to a reader.

Uses more charts and diagrams to explain essay structure and generating ideas.

NEW--Clarifies and simplifies the approach to editing by numbering the different strategies and explaining that different students respond best to different strategies for editing their work.
NEW--Provides new advice on budgeting time during exam essays and for writing periods of various lengths.

NEW--Adds a section on word processing.

Explains such items as the need for dark and clear print, standard fonts, separated jointed pages, and generally using word- processors correctly.

NEW--Provides a "Quick Reference Table of Contents" on the inside front cover.

Offers a comprehensive Three-Books-in-One design:


Provides a complete guide to writing essays -- from creating ideas and paragraphs to editing and proofreading -- and a comprehensive review of grammar and the mechanics of writing, such as capitalization, punctuation, and spelling.
Presents a selection of readings of enduring literary value.
Includes vocabulary-building exercises.
Exposes students to the classics written by a diverse range of authors, i.e.:

Works of enduring value by acclaimed authors such as Aesop, Shakespeare, Thoreau, Cervantes.
Works of modern writers -- such as Richard Wright, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Maya Angelou -- that are likely to become classics in the future.
Provides explanations, many examples, and numerous exercises for intensive practice in key areas.

Utilizes the "double-correction method" -- integrated with coverage of the writing and editing process -- to give students an individualized means of learning from past errors.

Gives special emphasis to the connection between speech and writing -- and features unique dictation exercises.

Contains special proofreading sections to help students overcome perennial problems such as run-on sentences, comma splices, and fragments.

Deals with the problem of dropped word endings -- especially the plural nouns, the possessive 's and s' endings, and the s and ed verb endings. ...show less
