Skills for writing–process and strategy

Writing for Life: Paragraphs and Essays is part of a two-book series that helps students understand the importance of strong writing skills and motivates them to become better writers. Students are encouraged to take charge of their own learning, and to transfer the strategies they currently apply to reading visuals to reading and writing text. The Fourth Edition offers high-interest topics, meaningful visuals, clear learning objectives, a wealth of examples, and ample opportunities for students to exercise their own writing skills.
