Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

This comprehensive book offers an integrated, balanced approach to paragraph and essay composition skills, grammar, and punctuation. It presents writing as a holistic activity through specific grammar/punctuation rules within the context of the specific types of writing where they are most often used (and misused). Making extensive use of writing samples, this book outlines the stages of the writing process by using those examples to demonstrate the stages. It offers a balance of rhetoric and grammar by showing specific organizational techniques for each rhetorical purpose and outlining revising and editing strategies for paragraphs and essays. It also includes guide questions to underscore the power of writing as a creative exchange between writer and reader. Ultimately, the book provides an effective bridge from paragraph to essay writing. The second edition of Writing Paragraphs and Essays has been revised to include a new section in each chapter called Writers as Spiders, containing links to Internet resources to reinforce grammatical/rhetorical concepts within each chapter with some writing assignments now tied to World Wide Web searches. An essential reference for every writer.
