This new edition of Writing Today builds on the first edition's strengths―an emphasis on both academic and workplace writing, a straightforward voice directed to the student writer, and a practical approach to sentence and paragraph development―by adding the following features: chapters on student success, writing proposals, writing critiques, group projects and oral presentations, and designing documents. As well, the text has nearly twice the first edition's number of opportunities for students to write about visual elements and images. This edition is in full-color format, helping to engage students as they focus on both the academic and applied contexts of writing.
