Summary

How do you prepare your students for their future writing courses? John Biays and Carol Wershoven believe you offer students constant reinforcement of the writing process. With a conversational tone and a blend of engaging activities, each writing chapter takes students through all of the steps of generating ideas, planning, drafting, and proofreading. Even the grammar chapters include sentence-generating and editing exercises as well as excerpts from powerful writers.

The third edition continues this step-by-step instruction by:

  • Including extensive but practical grammar instruction with three kinds of exercises: Practice, individual exercises; Collaborate, exercises to be completed with a partner or group; and Connect, editing exercises that apply grammar concepts to the writing of paragraphs.
  • Integrating the writing process throughout EVERY writing chapter
  • Offering comprehensive writing chapters: four initial chapters on the stages of writing and four self-contained chapters on the basic writing patterns: narrative, description, illustration, and process.

Along These Lines will help prepare your students by providing the best writing process coverage found in any basic writing series!
