Summary: A Student Guide to College Composition is meant to serve as a conventional textbook, though it can also be used by students independently to help them do well in composition. Part I: Succeeding in Composition describes teacher expectations in various models of the composition course. It then elaborates on nineteen do's and don'ts (attend class; understand assignments, turn in neat copy, etc.). The premise is that most student failure in composition results from ineffective behavior, morenot hopelessly poor writing ability. Part II: Meeting the Challenges of Academic Writing looks in detail at three of the most difficult and important challenges of academic writing: full development of points, educated adult reasoning, and the incorporation of outside sources. Part III: Handling the Major Assignments shows students how to create a well-developed first draft of the five most common writing assignments: the personal narrative, the informative article, the argument on a controversial issue, the literary criticism paper, and the long research paper. less
