The Prentice Hall Guide for College Writers features a brief but comprehensive coverage of the writing process and research.
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. Documentation coverage includes updated MLA and APA guidelines.
Early chapters teach remembering and observing, then the next chapters progress from critical reading, visual analysis, and investigation to exposition and argumentation (explaining, evaluating, problem solving, and arguing). The most important revisions of the ninth edition of The Prentice Hall Guide for College Writers relate to the challenges of digital literacy that students and teachers in the 21st century face; they are designed to help students assess, evaluate, and respond to a wide variety of texts and contexts.
