From the Back Cover:

You’ll never look at a writing guide the same way again!

Here’s what teachers are saying

“Lester Faigley's book is a winner for composition classes!” — Bennis Blue, Virginia State University

“My favorite part of A Backpack Guide to Writing is the use of student writing. I love how the student texts are shown in Chapters 8-14, particularly how the student’s writing process is shown. I’ve never seen that done in any other text I’ve used in my ten years of working with college students, and I think it would be so helpful to my students.” — Sara Webb-Sunderhaus, Indiana University Purdue University, Fort Wayne

A Backpack Guide to Writing is distinctive because it situates writing in activities students understand and value: discovering, exploring, journeying.” — Maureen Murphy, Dakota State University

“The readings in A Backpack Guide to Writing are a diverse and eclectic set of examples that show students how to write different essays different ways and also provide a lot of fodder for class discussion and short assignment writing, longer essays and journal writing.” — Michael Dubson, Bunker Hill Community College

“The most distinctive and special aspect of A Backpack Guide to Writing is its use of visuals to communicate ideas. I have found that to a greater and greater degree, students understand visual representations of ideas to linguistic ones. I have worked hard over the last 3-4 years to find ways of communicating with my students in ways that are more visual in nature — charts, graphs, diagrams, etc. This text does this and does it very well. I think that many of the students I have will benefit from this greatly.” — Michael Boyd, Illinois Central College

And here’s what students are saying

“This is one of the most helpful, thorough, and resourceful texts I’ve seen thus far.” — Lauren Olsen, Castleton State College

“This book is more eye catching to me, and more informational. I will actually read this book!” — Abbey Kline, Ball State University

“I like the fact that with the visual pictures I could understand the readings better.” — Jorge Arias, Grand Valley State University

“I thought the chapters did an excellent job of combining visual and textual explanations of the material. The combined presentation of the two gave me a greater understanding of the concepts.” — John Weiss, Jr., Ball State University

“College students have a lot of reading in every class and this text is more interesting and to the point. It is not busy work.” — Missi Dreyer, Grand Valley State University
