Summary


For courses in Writing.

 

A student-centric approach to writing

The DK Handbook is created from real student feedback, responding to their difficulty in finding new sources and using them critically and responsibly while writing. Each topic is presented in self-contained, two-page spreads for at-a-glance referencing. Explanations are concise and “chunked” to be more approachable, and accompanying visuals truly teach by making concepts and processes visible. The proven layout creates a consistent look and feel that helps students connect with the material, find information, and recognize solutions to writing problems.
