WriteSpace, an interactive online writing program and course management system, accompanies "Grassroots" to motivate students with carefully developed writing modules and exercises, innovative writing assignments, and online tutoring.A four-color design and images--including photos of Frank Gehry's Disney Concert Hall and of Galapagos tortoises--engage students and prompt them to think critically about the readings.High-interest models and exercises--focusing on topics such as Latina crossover stars, Habitat for Humanity, and online dating--engage students as they practice grammar skills and promote cultural literacy, spark discussion, and model good writing and rhetorical modes.Collaborative problem-solving and revising exercises all foster college-level thinking and writing skills.Chapter 30, "Putting Your Proofreading Skills to Work," provides high-interest paragraphs and essays for proofreading and grammar review, each containing a random mix of errors."Exploring Online" in-text references to relevant web sites extend text learning to online study, practice, and discovery."ESL Tips and Teaching Tips" in the Instructor's Annotated Edition provide suggestions for how to tailor chapter material to meet students'needs."Writer's Workshop" activities at the end of each unit feature a sample student paragraph or essay followed by discussion, peer-editing questions, and writing and revising assignments.
