Summary

Combining streamlined, nuts-and-bolts writing instruction with outstanding accessibility and visual appeal, The College Writer breaks new ground in brief rhetorics. The authors have made both content and presentation optimally exciting and useful for the student. This book targets the needs of less-prepared students, with four-color line drawings, color-coded headings, easy-to-grasp graphic organizers, and other guiding design elements on nearly every two-page spread. The College Writer opens each chapter with concise writing instruction followed by engaging examples and writing assignments. Diagrams, charts, and graphic organizers efficiently demonstrate ideas and principles, reducing the number of pages of text pages required for explanation. Step-indexing and color-coding allow students to thumb directly into the topic they're looking for. Checklists and summary boxes make it easy to refer back to material covered earlier. A CD-ROM provides the entire text in searchable format. It takes students through one student writer's experience in writing a research paper and engages them with instructional video and audio clips, animated graphic organizers, and appealing interactive exercises.
