Summary

Discovery-with a full-color design, an encouraging tone, meticulous explanations, and abundance of precisely sequenced and incrementally challenging exercise sets - focuses on helping students build sentence and paragraph writing skills through self and academic discovery. An abundance of precisely sequenced and incrementally challenging exercise sets (giving professors greater flexibility in assignments) help students build sentence and paragraph writing skills through self and academic discovery. Progressive exercises that begin on the comprehension level of fundamental concepts, move to exercises that focus on reflection, critical thinking, and invention while requiring short written responses, to exercises in which students are prompted to prewrite, draft, and revise.
