Using a process-writing approach, this third-year composition text helps students master writing skills and gain confidence as writers. The text is set up in a workbook format and is written entirely in French, except for the first chapter. Students broaden their repertoire of related speech acts, vocabulary, grammatical structures, and stylistic elements through three major sections. Each chapter features a model text--a literary piece, journalistic selection, or informal writing--that represents the Francophone world. In "Analyse stylistique" and "Analyse structurelle" exercises, students analyze writing style, organization, techniques, the role of images, and the use of verb tenses. Writing strategies checklists have been added to reinforce key points students should remember when composing essays in French. Model essays written by their peers help students gain confidence that they can compose essays in French without having to be professional writers. Supported by writing strategy instruction, application exercises, and editing activities, each chapter guides students through the stages of pre-writing and drafting, from generating, selecting, and ordering ideas, to revising, editing, and analyzing the final product.
