For your classes in Developmental Writing, McGraw-Hill introduces the latest in its acclaimed M Series. The M Series started with your students. McGraw-Hill conducted extensive market research with over 4,000 students to gain insight into their studying and buying behavior. Students told us they wanted more portable texts with innovative visual appeal and content that is designed according to the way they learn. We also surveyed instructors, and they told us they wanted a way to engage their students without compromising on high quality content.
More current, more portable, more captivating, plus a rigorous and innovative research foundation adds up to more learning. When you meet students where they are, you can take them where you want them to be.
This two-book developmental writing series with help students become more effective and more confident writers by meeting students where they are and by helping them get to where they want to go.
One of the authors' primary goals in teaching writing is to help their students explore how college writing can enhance students’ lives and help them achieve their goals, whether academic, professional, or beyond. Such exploration often begins with igniting a change in how our students look at writing. Far too often, students come to the first day of class thinking of the course as something simply to “get through,” something without any real connection to what goes on outside the classroom, when, in fact, writing is an essential part of their journey.
With these goals in mind, the authors have written, developed, and student-tested Going Places (P→E), and its partner text On the Go (S→P), so you can meet students where they are and use writing to take them where they want to go.
After all, engaged students and good writers do well in their classes; they retain content better and participate more fully. They use writing to learn and to share what they know. In addition, critical thinkers and good writers participate more fully in the workplace and are more likely to advance. Whatever their destination, effective writing will make a fundamental difference in each student’s journey.
