What is the most important step of the writing process? ALL OF THEM. Which is why Along These Lines integrates extensive, thorough coverage of the writing process in every writing chapter. From generating ideas (thought lines) to planning and focusing (outlines) to drafting and revising (rough lines) to proofreading and editing (final lines), students are guided through the key elements of the writing process as they practice through extensive exercises and as they write.

This new edition of Along These Lines: Writing Sentences and Paragraphs retains the extensive grammar coverage and meticulous process-oriented writing instruction applauded by users of the first edition. Based on encouraging comments from colleagues and conscientious reviewers, we have included more collaborative and individual grammar exercises, and we have incorporated additional chapters and activities that reinforce the stages of the writing process. We have also increased the number of proofreading and editing exercises to sharpen your students' revision skills.
We believe that an effective text should not only motivate and guide students, but it should also respect their individuality and their innate desire to learn and succeed. We trust that our text's numerous exercises, examples, and activities will work well with any lesson plan or instructional preference. Since each chapter is self-contained, instructors can easily adapt the book's flexible framework to accommodate a formal classroom or a writing lab setting. Ultimately, we hope this book will enable your students to take pride in their work, confidence in their ideas, and responsibility for their own learning.
