Summary: Based on a "whole language approach," The Writer's Way is a dynamic, process-centered paperback rhetoric with readings. This text recognizes that students learn best by doing--and writers learn best when inspired by compelling reasons to write, aided by strong examples, and reinforced by immediate personal rewards. With frank advice offered in a supportive, encouraging tone, Rawlins leads students step by step through the writing process, from pre-writing t moreo polishing the final draft.
