9780312405212: Real Writing with Readings: Paragraphs and Essays for College, Work, and Everyday Life

Beginning with the publication of the first edition of "Real Writing in 1998, the Anker Series (which also includes "Real Essays, 2003; see page 14) was the first to put writing in a real-world context and to cement the connection between what students learn in their college composition course and how they live their lives. The series helps students succeed because of its thorough, practical writing instruction and its message that writing well is both an essential and achievable skill. Featuring photos, quotes, profiles, and advice, Susan Anker's texts are infused with the voices and concerns of developmental writing instructors and their students.

About the Author:

Susan Anker (B.A., M.Ed., Boston University) brings a unique perspective to the teaching of the developmental writing course. She taught English and developmental writing before entering college publishing, where she worked for 18 years: as a sales representative and English/ESL editor at Macmillan Publishing Company; as developmental English/ESL editor, executive editor, and editor in chief at St. Martin’s Press; and as vice president and editor in chief for humanities at Houghton Mifflin Company. In each of these positions, she worked with developmental writing instructors and students, maintaining her early interest in the field.

Since the publication of the first edition of Real Writing in 1998, Anker has traveled extensively to campuses across the country, continuing her conversations with instructors and students and giving workshops and presentations. She believes that the writing course is, for many students, their first, best opportunity to learn the skills they will need to succeed in college and achieve their goals.

Review:

""The most intuitively organized and written text I have reviewed thus far."
