Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Covering concepts from grammar through essay writing, THE WRITER'S WORKPLACE WITH READINGS: BUILDING COLLEGE WRITING SKILLS is the most comprehensive and engaging text available for the beginning writing student. Based on many years of classroom teaching and research, this approachable text reflects the authors' goal of building and sustaining students' confidence in their writing by breaking down difficult writing concepts into easy-to-read, step-by-step explanations. Mastery Tests at the end of each grammar and mechanics chapter reinforce new concepts, and Working Together activities provide instructors with easy-to-incorporate lessons designed for group work and lively class discussions. Writing examples and exercises new to the Eighth Edition include high interest topics such as the increasing disparity between rich and poor, television programming, student debt, and being realistic when choosing career goals.
