SUMMARY

Continuing in the tradition of The College Writer, The College Writer's Handbook offers a proven at-a-glance page format, practical writing instruction, and an inviting design--everything today's students need for college and career writing. In addition, the authors' established use of humor as a pedagogical tool and their entertaining visuals, quotations, anecdotes, and models enhance learning and humanize the rich content, setting this handbook apart. The compact handbook balances clear and concise explanations with an abundance of useful hints and compelling examples. It also includes extended coverage of critical topics such as the writing process as well as critical-reading and critical-thinking skills. An easy-to-use CD and companion web site enrich the handbook's instruction, providing useful learning tools for the modern writer. Lively, user-friendly design elements such as bulleted lists, one- and two-page spreads, twelve tabs to organize topics, and color to highlight key information, facilitate reading and enable students to find information quickly. Exceptional coverage of writing across the curriculum and writing in other contexts includes chapters on writing personal, analytical, and persuasive essays, along with models of common writing forms such as literary analyses, lab reports, field reports, and research papers. A thorough introduction to critical thinking, reading, and viewing helps students analyze texts and images more closely and apply these principles to their own writing. Three full chapters on design include high-interest material on creating and using visuals and on writing and designing for the Web. Superior integrated ESL guidance--combined with an easy-to-follow format--make this handbook appropriate for classes with nonnative speakers of English. The comprehensive research section provides in-depth coverage of using sources appropriately, integrating sources, and avoiding plagiarism. Students can refer to detailed coverage of four documentation formats: MLA, APA, Chicago, and CSE (CBE).VanderMey, Randall is the author of 'College Writer's Handbook ', published 0008 under ISBN 9780618491698 and ISBN 0618491694.
