Here's What Teachers Are Saying "Writinghas managed a great featto gather together under one cover what is essential to the craft of expository writing at the college level and to do so in an amazing and colorful layout." -Gary Enns, Cerro Coso Community College "I'd describeWritingas a rhetoric that's actually rooted in rhetorical principles and genre theory. It eliminates much of the wordy instruction commonly used in writing texts in favor of a distillation of essential information and instruction with numerous examples." -Jeffrey Andelora, Mesa Community College "I think this text succeeds to a better degree than one that tries to explain the writing process solely via a narrative. I think showing handwritten brainstorming, showing notations on a first draft, showing attempts to create a good beginning (and multiple mediocre beginnings) are all good." -Larry Riley, Ball State University "Writingtreats students respectfully. It situates them as fellow explorers. . . . It asks them to draw on their own experiences a great deal throughout the text and, along with being 'inviting,' that strategy clearly tells readers that they are co-constructors of knowledge, that their experiences are valid." -Patricia Webb, Arizona State University (reviewer) "I believe that the selection of readings that accompany each of the kinds of writing (reflecting, observing, informing, etc.) are superb choices, because their subjects are contemporary and of interest to students and also provide a variety of genresfrom articles to essays to blogs and leaflets." -Martha Petry, Jackson Community College "One of the problems with most textbooks is they overwhelm readers with written text; this textbook doesn't do that. More importantly, the images in this book aren't merely eye candy; they help illustrate/teach the ideas discussed on each page." -Brett McInelly, Brigham Young University And Here's What Students Are Saying "This is one of the most helpful, thorough, and resourceful texts I've seen thus far." -Lauren Olsen, Castleton State College "I thought the chapters did an excellent job of combining visual and textual explanations of the material. The combined presentation of the two gave me a greater understanding of the concepts." -John Weiss, Jr., Ball State University "College students have a lot of reading in every class and this text is more interesting and to the point. It is not busy work." -Missi Dreyer, Grand Valley State University "This book is more eye catching to me, and more informational. I will actually read this book!" -Abbey Kline, Ball State University "I like the fact that with the visual pictures I could understand the readings better." -Jorge Arias, Grand Valley State University Visit us at www.ablongman.com [read more]
