9780131117167: The Scott Foresman Handbook for Writers, 7th Edition

The Scott, Foresman Handbook for Writers, 6e continues its tradition of innovation with ground-breaking coverage of grading, service learning, document design, and research. Already the most imitated book in its field, SFH/6e becomes the first handbook to offer a full chapter on "Evaluating Writing," covering both traditional and portfolio systems of grading. The new chapter answers many of the questions about grading principles, criteria and procedures that instructors face every term. There's more, too, in this edition about the kinds of writing more and more college writers are doing in their professional and civic lives or in service-learning courses. Already a leader in technology, SFH now expands its first-ever treatment of document design into a fully illustrated section that explains document design as a process like writing itself. There's a thorough new chapter with full coverage of Writing for the Web and a portfolio chapter of four-color model documents. Coverage of research continues to set the standard for college projects with new material on designing research projects, evaluating sources, and working with online materials.A series of "E-tips" here and throughout the volume directs writers to helpful online materials to enhance their thinking and research. But the edition has not neglected more traditional elements of writing. Every chapter has been reworked to enhance clarity and to polish the notably friendly style of SFH. No handbook addresses writers more cordially or helpfully. A new, cleaner design makes all materials more accessible and frequent photos and images make the entire package more student friendly.
