Summary: Writing and research have changed dramatically since the first hardcover handbooks appeared. Today's students don't just write papers: they create multimedia presentations. They don't just do research: they find their way through a maze of online information. They don't just read print: they analyze visuals. They don't just come to class: they participate in an online learning community.
These changes have put new demands on composition courses. With its f...show moreocus on writing in college and its integrated coverage of technology and visual rhetoric, The New McGraw-Hill Handbook has been designed to meet those demands. New Features
Chapter 1 provides a unique introduction to learning in college that discusses writing as a learning tool as well as learning in a multimedia world. In addition, Part 13 offers resources such as a glossary of terms from across the curriculum, a timeline of world history, and a world map.
Visual rhetoric--from the critical reading of visuals to the designing of papers, websites, PowerPoint presentations, and more--is fully integrated into the writing process.
A unique chapter on finding and creating visual sources helps students choose which kinds of visuals to include in their papers and advises students why and when they should--or shouldn't--use images to reinforce a point.
A unique guide addresses the genres of academic writing--informative reports, interpretive analyses (including writing about literature), arguments, oral reports, multimedia presentations, and exams.
A full chapter on multimedia writing (Chapter 14) prepares students for the challenges of assignments that require them to present or publish their work electronically.
Exceptional coverage of plagiarism includes Chapter 20, "Plagiarism, Copyright, and Intellectual Property" (an overview of the issues involved in plagiarism) and Chapter 21, "Working with Sources and Avoiding Plagiarism" (practical instruction on how to avoid plagiarism).
Documentation flowcharts in the chapters on MLA and APA citation styles help students identify the kind of source they are dealing with and where to find the proper format for documenting it.
Visual guides for documenting sources include facsimile pages from books, periodicals, and websites.
State-of-the-art approaches to the use of technology for composition, design, research, and documentation are addressed throughout, both in the text and in "TextConnex" boxes.
References in the text margin alert students to online support available from Catalyst 2.0--including a variety of interactive tutorials, more than 4,500 exercises, Bibliomaker software, The New York Times "On Language" columns, and more (see "Supplements" for more details).
More sample papers and samples of writing than in any other handbook feature student and professional writing covering a variety of purposes, from a wide range of disciplines (including a student essay from conception to final draft, as well as a case study of a research report).
Part 6, Writing Beyond College, covers writing at work and in the community. Special topics include applying for internships, service learning, and creating brochures and posters.
Abundant resources for multilingual writers include a three-chapter "Guide for Multilingual Writers" (Part 12), numerous "For Multilingual Students" boxes, and more.
Extensive coverage of grammar, usage, and mechanics is presented within the context of editing. "Identify and Edit" boxes provide visual analyses of common problems and strategies for identifying and correcting them.
"Grammar Checker" boxes discuss the limitations of electronic grammar-checking programs.
"Test Yourself" quizzes at the beginning of Parts 6 through 12 help students pinpoint aspects of grammar, usage, and mechanics that they need to work on. Scratch-off answer keys reveal solutions and direct students to additional help in the handbook.
Practice exercises appear throughout the book, with content drawn from subjects across the curriculum. In addition, Catalyst offers more than 4,500 exercises with immediate feedback.
