The Writer's Harbrace Handbook

by Cheryl Glenn Loretta Gray

THE WRITER'S HARBRACE HANDBOOK, 4th Edition, is grounded in the belief that an understanding of the rhetorical situation--the writer, reader, message, context, and exigence (reason for writing)--provides the best starting point for effective writing and reading. This comprehensive handbook guides student writers in employing that rhetorical understanding as they choose the most effective information to include, the best arrangement of that information, and the most appropriate language to use. The text moves students through the steps that constitute successful writing--from finding appropriate topics and writing clear thesis statements to arranging ideas and developing initial drafts. THE WRITER'S HARBRACE HANDBOOK also provides several sample student papers and excerpts of papers in various disciplines, along with instruction for successfully completing similar assignments.

A Writer's Reference

by Diana Hacker Nancy Sommers Tom Jehn Jane Rosenzweig

Having helped nearly 3 million students at 1,600 colleges and universities to write well,A Writer's Referencesucceeds because it has always been grounded in classroom experience. Nearly twenty years ago, Diana Hacker reinvented the college handbook by looking at her own students' needs. She crafted a first-of-its-kind reference that offered practical solutions to college writing problems in a language students could understand and in a format that was easy for them to use. Her many innovations -- hand-edited sentences, grammar checker boxes, student-friendly index entries, ESL coverage, and a lay-flat comb binding -- have been widely imitated but never improved upon. In the Hacker tradition, the new contributing authors -- Nancy Sommers, Tom Jehn, Jane Rosenzweig, and Marcy Carbajal Van Horn -- have crafted solutions for the writing problems of today's college students. Together they give us a new edition that provides more help with academic writing and that works better for a wider range of multilingual students.

Writing with Confidence: Writing Effective Sentences and Paragraphs

by Alan Meyers

Writing With Confidence, a value-priced developmental writing book, provides essential instruction and practice in basic writing skills at the sentence and paragraph level. The first developmental book to include incorporate high-interest, connected discourse subject matter in its exercises,Writing with Confidenceretains and expands on this feature. Most chapters pursue a theme throughout the exercises-the dreams and premonitions surrounding the death of Abraham Lincoln; animal facts and oddities; the gustatory achievements of Diamond Jim Brady, the world's greatest eater; the voyage of the Kon-Tiki; and so on. The text's six-unit structure includes thirty short chapters on the writing process, paragraph organization and development, the shape of the essay, all the rhetorical modes, and all the sentence skills. The writing chapters are fully process oriented, showing the development of a paragraph in six steps, from planning and outlining through drafting, revising, editing, and proofreading. Optional collaborative activities are provided in the margins of each chapter. This focus on writing is balanced with equal attention to sentence skills, not only for native speakers of English who need help, but for non-English-dominant speakers as well. ESL boxes provide help for readers whose first language is not English, as do the two final chapters of the book, which address troublesome matters such as verb phrases, word order, articles, and prepositions. The reading-writing connection throughout the book has been expanded, with sixteen additional readings in the last unit of the book. And the popular "Blueprints for Writing" found in the rhetorical chapters have been carried into unit ending "Blueprints for Success," in which the most important concepts and practices are summarized in graphs and charts. For those seeking to develop their writing skills at the sentence to paragraph level.
