About the book:

For courses in Developmental Writing at the essay level or freshman composition (lower level). Clearly organized, highly flexible and refreshingly fun to use, this complete guide to composition and grammar instills in students a sense of the structure of an essay and the purpose of its various parts-a mental template that will serve them in any type of academic writing and that, once mastered, will give them the freedom to actually enjoy and appreciate the act of writing itself. It addresses all parts of the classic five-paragraph essay-thesis, introduction, body and conclusion-in separate, concentrated sections, and includes an abundance of examples and practice exercises to help hone each element. A separate grammar section enables instructors to mix and match chapters to suit their students' needs, and a selection of fifteen readings-complete with reading comprehension questions and writing assignments-helps students take advantage of the strong connection between reading and writing.
