9780130694768: The basic writer's book

The book focuses on writing as a process. Its three-part organization ensures the understanding of basic sentence and paragraph patterns, as well as the writing process itself. Sentence combining exercises help readers concentrate on the effective presentation of ideas. It presents grammar and mechanics to have an immediate impact on effective writing. It is designed particularly to teach the basics of writing in English. The Basic Writer's Book employs an extensive use of sentence combining exercises to reflect the way written ideas are assembled. The book presents realistic exercises that reveal the recursive nature of writing. These exercises give methods and suggestions to be used in exploring, drafting, editing, and revising writing. The third edition of The Basic Writer's Book has been revised to focus each chapter on a theme such as American History, Sports, or Science that stress multiculturalism and diversity. Each chapter now includes a broader range of exercises requiring varying levels of knowledge and skill. Separate chapters are now devoted to revising, editing, and verbs. A valuable reference book for any reader who needs to improve his writing skills.
