Summary

This innovative, confidence-building text/workbook is based on the assumption that students have a built-in "ear" for language--i.e., can "hear" the patterns and rhythms that underlie speaking fluency and that fluency in writing can be developed by applying this inner "ear." A multitude of exercises, assignments, and writing suggestions give students opportunity to use this "inner ear" to develop their writing, editing, and revising skills and understanding of basic grammar. The three part organization allows students and instructors to focus on either writing paragraphs, writing sentences, or mechanics, or to work in any sequence they choose.

A variety of skill exercises and writing activities focus on developing good writing skills.

A focus on student's ability to communicate verbally and how to use that skill to develop writing skills and an understanding of grammar and mechanics.

A simple, straightforward style that keeps the vocabulary in reach of the students at all times.

Contains a practical, thorough section on prewriting and dealing with the fear of writing and the importance of Standard English.

"Ear Alert" icons to warn students when NOT to trust their "ear."

"In a Nutshell" boxes throughout that recap important concepts presented in the chapter.

Includes collaborative exercises.

Offers an abundance of student and professional models and short practice exercises that reinforce each element taught:

Fill-in Exercises.
Talking Assignments.
Writing Assignments.
