Summary: Axelrod and Cooper's acclaimed Guides to Writing. For six of the most frequently assigned genres in the first-year composition class, the Concise Guide includes the Writing Guides that have made The St. Martin's Guide to Writing so successful -- remembering events, writing profiles, explaining concepts, arguing a position, proposing a solution, and justifying an evaluation -- all streamlined for this edition.

Systematic integration of reading and writing. E ...show moreighteen reading selections by professional and student writers are paired with questions and commentary that focus on writing strategies students can use in their own essays.

Clear coverage of strategies for writing and critical reading. Writing strategies such as invention and cueing the readers are discussed in the assignment chapters and reinforced in Chapters 8 and 9. Chapter 10 focuses on a variety of reading strategies.

Comprehensive chapters on research. Three chapters present strategies for field research, library and Internet research and for using, evaluating, and acknowledging sources that will help students address all aspects of writing research papers.

More genres to choose from. The third edition of the Concise Guide includes six assignment chapters for six genres -- one more than in the last edition. The new chapter on writing profiles offers instructors more teaching options.

Many new readings. Of the 18 essays in the Concise Guide, 15 are new and half are by women writers. Several of the new essays illustrate how visual elements such as diagrams, cartoons, and screen shots can be used effectively in a particular genre.

Content connected to real life. To help students connect writing to their own lives, each of the assignment chapters now begins with scenarios about "Writing in the Community" and "Writing in the Workplace" in addition to "Writing in Your Other Courses." Community and workplace connections are emphasized in the apparatus accompanying the readings and in lists that help students generate writing topics.

Up-to-date coverage of electronic research and documentation. Current information on evaluating and documenting Internet sources makes it easier than ever to integrate online research into the composition course -- without supplanting more traditional information sources.

A completely new look. The Concise Guide has a striking new design that uses color to make the book not only more visually appealing but also easier for students to read and refer to.

A new emphasis on visual literacy. The Concise Guide now integrates reading and pedagogy that helps students recognize and assess the visual component of texts. ...show less
