Summary

With efficient and engaging instruction and a consistent focus on why writing matters in the real world, Real Writing delivers a powerful message to students: Good writing skills are both achievable and essential. Concise Four Basics boxes and engaging paragraph- and essay-writing chapters present writing instruction in clear, manageable increments. The Four Most Serious Errors and other sentence-level chapters cover grammar in a lively and supportive way, with abundant opportunities for practice and application. As always, Susan Anker encourages students to connect what they learn with their own goals and with the needs and expectations of the larger world. In Profiles of Success, former students, now employed in a variety of professions, speak frankly about their experiences in school and after graduation, with examples of the types of writing their current jobs require. In this edition, Anker does far more to build students' critical thinking, critical reading, and argument skills and adds innovative new assignments, readings, and visuals. Real Writing is now integrated with LearningCurve — online, adaptive quizzing activities that reinforce what students learn in the book.

Author Biography

Susan Anker (BA, MEd, 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 eighteen 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.
