by Randall VanderMey
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin
Edition: 2nd - 2006
Combining streamlined, nuts-and-bolts writing instruction with accessibility and visual appeal, The College Writer helps visual learners and less-prepared students master the writing process. The text features step-indexing and color-coding that allow students to thumb directly to a topic, and checklists and summary boxes that make it easy to refer back to previously covered material. In addition, thorough coverage of drafting, writing, revising, and proofreading includes sample paragraphs and visuals that walk students through the process of identifying a topic and writing a paper. The Second Edition offers 20 additional professional readings, new information on stylistic choices, and enhanced coverage of incorporating visual elements into the writing process.
