9780205668717: Writing for Life: Paragraphs and Essays (2nd Edition) (Henry Writing Series)

D.J. Henry wrote Writing for Life from the ground up for today’s college student.  The ground-breaking approach of combining instruction and visual tools makes writing, reading and thinking processes visible, and shows the processes rather than just telling students about them. Highly graphic layouts and unique visual pedagogy empower students to transfer the learning strategies they already use in interpreting the visual world to the task of writing.
