Since the best-selling first edition, The Scott Foresman Handbookhas proven again and again that a comprehensive handbook can be easy, practical--even fun--to use. Each new edition has proveded complete, up-to-date material on writing processes, argumentation, style, grammar, mechanics, and punctuation, in friendly and accessible language. Yet, new ground has been broken as the authors have anticipated new developments in writing influenced by new theories and new technologies. Earlier editions have led the field in addressing civic literacy, visual literacy, online research, service learning and other emerging trends. As a result of this forward-looking philosophy, writers using The Scott Foresman Handbook know what college writing means today and what writers will need to know tomorrow.
