Written in a clear, engaging style, this text combines four books-a rhetoric, a research guide, a reader, and a handbook-into one convenient teaching tool. The Rhetoric section presents a full range of writing strategies, along with chapters on paragraphs, sentences, style, and three specialized types of writing. This section also includes in-depth chapters on planning and drafting, as well as revising and editing a paper. The Research Guide section includes three comprehensive chapters on the research process, making supplemental handouts or guides unnecessary. The Reader section contains forty-four essays that illustrate the different writing strategies and display a wide variety of styles, tones, and themes. The Handbook section offers easy access to the major elements of grammar, punctuation, and mechanics, and includes a unit on spelling and a glossary of word usage.
Available in an alternate version-without the Handbook section.
