Summary
  • Numerous and varied exercises, a range of good student samples, and a user-friendly chapter structure (featuring a chapter map)
  • "Going to the Next Level" sections that show students specifically how to move from paragraphs to longer assignments--an important step skimmed over in competing books
  • In-context grammar study in all process chapters, giving students opportunities to see grammar at work in real writing, as well as a handbook component (called the "Tool Kit")
  • "Destinations Boxes" in each chapter that further emphasize (with specific illustrations) one of the book's key messages: that speaking, thinking, and writing are at work during all stages of the process, and that developing these skills will help students get wherever they want to in life
