Summary

Summary Strong on examples and exercises, this is one writing workbook that truly abides by the maxim, ''practice, practice, practice.'' Using a blend of proven teaching methods and numerous exercises, the text guides students from mastery of basic sentence skills to short compositions. The opening chapter starts with clustering and other process-oriented exercises, Subsequent chapters progress from topic sentences and paragraphs to thesis statements and compositions, At every level, the text pairs exercises in recognition with actual writing practice, With its clear, step-by-step progression of topics and exercises, this workbook can be used effectively in courses from the developmental level to regular freshman composition. This latest edition features an even broader range of material. New explanations and exercises make the early chapters more accessible than ever; while new material in the later chapters-including a new chapter on sentence style-make the second half of the text slightly more substantive and challenging. This edition also benefits from a new format, many new exercises, and a more engaging, streamlined style. While loyalists will notice the text's many improvements, Paragraph Practice, 7/E maintains the emphasis on organization and practice that have helped generations of students achieve stronger writing.
