Part One, ''A Rhetoric for College Writers,'' provides a conceptual framework for The Allyn & Bacon Guide to Writing by showing how inquiring writers pose p roblems, pursue them through discussion and exploratory writing, and solve them within a rhetorical context shaped by the writer's purpose, audience, and genre.

Part Two, ''Writing Projects,'' contains twelve self-contained assignment chapters arranged acco rding to the aims of writing : to learn, to express, to explore, to inform, to analyze and synthesize, and to persuade. Each chapter guides students through the process of generating and exploring ideas, composing and drafting, and revising and editing. Con cluding each chapter are ''Guidelines for Peer Reviewers,'' which sum up the important features in the assignments and facilitate detailed, helpful peer reviews.

Part Three, ''A Guide to Composing and Revising,'' comprised of three self-contained chapters of nuts-and-bolts strategies for composing and revising.
