A writer's workshop: crafting paragraphs, building essays
This process-based paragraph-to-essay level text makes three basic assumptions about developing writers: they learn to write best by writing, they need to revise their work significantly, and they deserve comprehensive instruction on why and how to revise to express themselves more effectively. To this end, A Writer's Workshop provides many opportunities for students at all levels--from the least-to best prepared--to write often with a rhetorical context and to critically evaluate their work.
