Summary

GET WRITING: PARAGRAPHS AND ESSAYS is a flexible textbook that meets the needs of a variety of developmental writers including recent high school graduates, working adults, and those for whom English is a second language. GET WRITING gives students the opportunity to acquire skills and develop confidence through their own writing. It encourages students to write about their own goals, families, jobs, college-life, personal interests, and the world around them. Throughout the book students have the opportunity to express themselves on a range of issues, then examine and improve their words, sentences, and paragraphs. Above all, GET WRITING asks students to think critically and sharpen their editing skills by asking them two basic questions: "What are you trying to say?" and "What have you written?"
