This dynamic, process-centered paperback combines a rhetoric with readings. Based on a "whole language approach," The Writer's Way recognizes that people learn best by reflecting on what they do--and that writers learn best when inspired by compelling reasons to write, motivated by strong examples, and reinforced by immediate personal rewards. Offering frank advice in a supportive, encouraging tone, this text leads students step by step through the writing process, from pre-writing to polishing the final draft. Part I, "Introduction to Writing," provides a broad introduction to the natural-language attitude toward learning to write, establishing the "hands-on" approach of the book. Parts II and III offer step-by-step walkthroughs of the writing process, beginning with generating ideas, drafting, and organizing (Part II: "Planning and Drafting"), followed by "Revising and Editing," in Part III, which includes coverage of peer critiquing. Part IV, "Modes of Writing," highlights the decisions about audience, purpose, structure, and language that writers face when writing in personal, informative, and persuasive modes. Part V, "Academic Writing," discusses writing for college courses and includes chapters on writing about literature, writing in the sciences, collaborative writing, and research. Part VI, "A Treasury of Essays," is a collection of 24 model student essays collected by the author from his classrooms over the years.
