Habits of the Creative Mind is not another textbook.  Instead, Habits of the Creative Mind is a series of guideposts taking your students off the beaten path of five paragraph essays and rote responses.  Portable and flexibly arranged, it works beautifully alone or as a supplement to other materials.  In this refreshingly conversational volume, your students will learn to trust and refine their own thinking and improve their writing—at all skill levels.  They will have access to Richard E. Miller’s and Ann Jurecic’s much acclaimed, truly unique  approach to posing and exploring questions, and facing complexity—in which there are no limits to how far a student may go with his or her thinking and writing.  Instantly accessible and instantly flexible, all your students need to do is dive in anywhere in the book and be ready to try something new.  And throughout, they will benefit from innovative, manageable exercises—which may be completed in any order—to help them along the way. 

In the Framework for Success in Postsecondary Writing, the Council for Writing Program Administrators, the National Council of Teachers of English, and the National Writing Project all affirm the need to shift the emphasis in writing instruction to habits of mind.  This book answers that call—and gives your students the tools they need to rise to the occasion.
