Recognizing that many students in the sentence-to-paragraph-level course have experienced repeated failure in the past, Stepping Stones takes a fresh approach to the core challenges of the course. The book clearly articulates — textually and visually — the sentence patterns that college writers need to master. Then, it patiently guides students through every step of building these sentences and recognizing common problems in them. Additionally, the book offers unusually thorough, carefully staged guidance in developing and organizing ideas — two of the most difficult tasks for developmental students.

Drawing on years of classroom experience, award-winning educator Chris Juzwiak recognizes that all students have the potential to become better writers and just need the right tools to succeed.
