Summary

A comprehensive guide to writing for one- or two-semester freshman composition courses. This all-in-one text offers hallmark coverage of the purposes of writing, focusing on the importance of a writer's research, critical-reading skills, the ability to organize ideas, and a strategy to assess and develop rhetorical contexts. While the guide emphasizes traditional writing purpose and process, the author also considers the technological changes that influence and enhance contemporary writing, including expanded coverage of researching, evaluating, and documenting internet sources.
