This textbook is a comprehensive guide to English composition writing. Its blend of concepts and practical strategies, intellectual rigour and readability, critical thinking and emphasis on writing for the "real world" make it a flexible learning tool for strengthening writing skills. It presents exemplary and relevant readings for Canadian audiences as well as strategies for professional writing, conducting research, analyzing and using images, and interpreting literature. The Trans-Canada Writer focuses on critical stages in the writing process, providing students with techniques to improve their writing and overcome common problems. It encourages students to see a composition course in highly practical terms, giving them the important critical thinking and writing skills they need in future classes and in any field or occupation they pursue: the ability to reason logically, organize ideas, and communicate effectively. The Trans-Canada Writer is divided into five parts: The Critical Writing Process, Critical Reading and Writing, Research and Writing, Writing for Special Purposes, and the Handbook. After introducing strategies for establishing context and enhancing critical thinking, The Trans-Canada Writer guides students in developing a thesis and creating supportive structures for ideas. Students also are given practical directions for revising and editing.
