Summary

Guidelines, Third edition, is an advanced reading and writing text designed specifically to strengthen students' academic writing. The cross-cultural readings in Guidelines offer a wide range of thought-provoking subject matter, varying in genre, viewpoint, length, and style. As students respond to the readings and work their way through the writing assignments, they are assisted by strategies laid out in 'Guidelines' boxes and by examples from other student writers. Writing assignments include research writing and essays that synthesize sources, critique arguments, and analyze fiction. A handbook is included as a reference guide in the back of the book. It contains sections on documenting sources, drafting and revising, and correcting grammatical errors. Guidelines, Third edition, is a major revision. The readings have been updated, the chapters are easier to navigate, and the 'Guidelines' now include references to the Internet as a means of research.
