Summary

For courses in Writing.

This version of  The DK Handbook  has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)*


A student-centric approach to writing

The  DK Handbook  represents a true marriage of visual and textual content, in which 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 appealing for today’s readers, and accompanying visuals truly teach – making concepts and processes accessible to students. The class-tested layout creates a consistent look and feel that helps students connect with the material, find information, and recognize solutions to writing problems.


* The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.
