This textbook has gone through a number of transformations since the first edition ... basic assumptions about the nature of communication and writing have remained unchanged. Still adhere to the theory ... that writing involves an understanding of both purpose and organization, or ..., aims and mode. We are convinced that a recognition of these concepts will aid student writers in achieving their various writing goals, both in college and later in their careers.... Because most writing instruction is indirect ... the aims and modes can be a means for students to organize and understand what they read. The student's own writing then becomes a part of the body of written material which he or she reads.... Editing then becomes a matter of reading what one has written, identifying the aim and mode, and rewriting it to make it better achieve the aim. -Pref.
