The New Century Handbook is a comprehensive handbook and guide to the basics of writing, research, and grammar. Recognizing that the majority of college writers today use word processors and Internet information in conjunction with their composition courses, it is the first college handbook to thoroughly integrate an awareness of and instruction on the benefits of computer technology to the writing and research processes. Chapters on writing not only explain the various stages of creating a paper, but also incorporate instruction on how students can use word processors to create better developed, well-written essays. Likewise, the research section acknowledges students' varying experience with computers and the Internet, so it illustrates how to find and evaluate print and electronic sources to formulate thoughtful and carefully documented research papers. The chapters on grammar and mechanics offer a complete reference guide and include tips on how to work with grammar- and spell-checkers. As an extra benefit, packaged inside every student textbook is a FREE Interactive Edition CD-ROM a valuable resource and learning tool for students. For professors, this new CD-ROM offers a convenient way to integrate the power of the World Wide Web into their course. It brings instruction on writing, research, and grammar to a new and exciting level. The CD-ROM includes all of the pages of the book itself and four key icons to help further students' learning.
