Summary: With a clear and easy-to-read presentation students want, visual instruction students prefer, and pedagogical support students need, Writing Today is a practical and useful guide to writing for college and beyond. Students need to learn to write successfully for their college courses, but they also want to learn how to transfer their writing skills outside of college and in their careers. By teaching kinds of writing (analyses, reports, proposals, etc.), strat
egies for writing (narration, comparison, argumentation, etc.), and processes for writing (planning, drafting, revising, etc.), Writing Today provides students with tools they can mix and match as needed to respond effectively to many writing situations. While Writing Today offers comprehensive and detailed instruction that students need, the highly-praised, interactive writing style is written for the way today's students read and learn: instruction is succinct; key concepts are immediately defined and reinforced; paragraphs are short and supported by instructional visuals. This interactive presentation helps students ask questions of the text, raid it for answers, and access knowledge when they are ready for it, putting students in control of their learning. Two versions are available at value prices--a brief version with handbook and a comprehensive version with an anthology of readings and handbook--and offer instructors maximum flexibility in course design.
