Real Essaysdelivers the powerful message that good writing, thinking, and reading skills are both essential and achievable. From the inspiring stories told by former students in Profiles of Success to the practical strategies for community involvement in the new Community Connections, Re al Essayshelps students to connect the writing class with their real lives and with the expectations of the larger world. So that students don't get overwhelmed, the book focuses first on the most important things in each area, such as the Four Most Serious Errors in grammar; the Four Basics of each rhetorical strategy; and the academic skills of summary, analysis, and synthesis.
Susan Anker (B.A., M.Ed., Boston University) brings a unique perspective to the teaching of the developmental writing course. She taught English and developmental writing before entering college publishing, where she worked for 18 years: as a sales representative and English/ESL editor at Macmillan Publishing Company; as developmental English/ESL editor, executive editor, and editor in chief at St. Martin’s Press; and as vice president and editor in chief for humanities at Houghton Mifflin Company. In each of these positions, she worked with developmental writing instructors and students, maintaining her early interest in the field.
Since the publication of the first edition of Real Writing in 1998, Anker has traveled extensively to campuses across the country, continuing her conversations with instructors and students and giving workshops and presentations. She believes that the writing course is, for many students, their first, best opportunity to learn the skills they will need to succeed in college and achieve their goals.
