For undergraduate Composition I and II courses. From the first edition,The Prentice Hall Guide for College Writershas focused on writing for a variety of purposes in a rhetorical situation. Although audience, context, and writing situation are important, a writerrs"s purpose should be and has always been the focal point of the sequence of assignments. The Prentice Hall Guidebegins with the purposes of observing and remembering, which are personally important for the writer. It then turns to more reader-based, academic purposes of critical reading, expository writing, and argumentative writing. Each chapter in this sequence is self-contained with introductions, guidelines, professional and student models, writing process advice, research tips, revising guidelines, peer review questions, and postscript reflections on the assignment. This compact, efficient guide addresses all the critical aspects of college writing - both personal and academic - within rich, self-contained chapters - no more flipping back and forth between sections to find appropriate guidelines, models, and writing process information.
