The Guide, in Parts 1 and 2, lays out focused advice for writing common genres, while the Reference, in Parts 3 through 9, covers the range of writing and research skills that students need as they work across genres and disciplines. Intuitive cross-referencing and a modular chapter organization that’s simple to follow make it easy for students to work back and forth between the chapters and still stay focused on their own writing. Now also available in a version with 50 fresh, additional readings from a wide range of sources, organized by the genres covered in the guide. The result is everything you need to teach composition in a flexible, highly visual guide, reference, and reader. Introducing Author Talk: Watch our video interview with Jay Dolmage.
