Backpack Writinguses written instruction and visual tools to teach how to read, write, and research effectively for different purposes in a brief travel-friendly format. Lester Faigley’s clear and inviting teaching style and Dorling Kindersley’s accessible and striking design combine to give students a textbook that shows them what readers and writers actually do. Unique, dynamic presentations of reading, writing, and research processes in the text bring writing alive for students and speak to students with many learning styles. Throughout the book, students are engaged and learning, with such notable features as “process maps” to guide students through the major writing assignments, extensive examples of student “Writers at work,” and diverse, distinctive reading selections.
