The most successful college rhetoric published in over a decade, The Allyn & Bacon Guide to Writing offers the most progressive and teachable introduction now available to academic and personal writing. The four-color guide offers engaging instruction in rhetoric and composition, a flexible sequence of comprehensive writing assignments, numerous examples of student and professional writing, and thorough guides to research and editing.

Part One, "A Rhetoric for College Writers," provides a conceptual framework for The Allyn & Bacon Guide to Writing by showing how inquiring writers pose problems, pursue them through discussion and exploratory writing, and solve them within a rhetorical context shaped by the writer's purpose, audience, and genre. Part Two, "Writing Projects," contains thirteen self-contained assignment chapters arranged according to the purposes for writing.Each chapter guides students through the process of generating and exploring ideas, composing and drafting, and revising and editing. Concluding each chapter are "Guidelines for Peer Reviewers," which sum up the important features in the assignments and facilitate detailed, helpful peer reviews. Part Three, "A Guide to Composing and Revising," comprised of three self-contained chapters of nuts-and-bolts strategies for composing and revising. Part Four, "A Rhetorical Guide to Research," presents pedagogically sequenced instruction for helping students learn to conduct searches, evaluate sources, and incorporate sources into their own writing. Research skills are taught within a rhetorical context with special attention to the rhetoric of websites. Part Five, "A Guide to Special Writing and Speaking Occasions," gives students helpful advice on working in groups, giving speeches and presentations, writing essay exams, assembling portfolios, and writing reflective self-evaluations. Part Six, "A Guide to Editing," is a concise handbook of grammar, usage, mechanics, punctuation, style, and editing.
