KEYS FOR WRITERS is the most accessible, user-friendly handbook in the tabbed, comb-bound market. With a simple tabbing system (five red tabs for the writing process and research, and five gold tabs for sentence-level lessons), thorough and concise coverage of grammar, and an easy-to-read format, KEYS FOR WRITERS is a valuable resource to students in all disciplines throughout their college careers. The Fifth Edition features enhanced discussion of plagiarism (and how to avoid it), expanded argument coverage, a full literature paper, two-page "Source Shots" that visually demonstrate to students where to find citation information in different kinds of publications, and even more discussion of evaluating online sources and writing in and for online environments. An emphasis on critical reading and critical thinking appears throughout discussions of the writing process, argument, and research. Superior coverage of style includes the popular "5 C's of Style"—Cut, Check for Action, Connect, Commit, and Choose the Best Words—which helps students submit their best work. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2009 MLA HANDBOOK FOR WRITERS OF RESEARCH PAPERS, Seventh Edition.
