Writing First: Practice in Context helps students master basic writing skills by providing them with clear instruction, engaging models, interesting and abundant exercises, and plenty of guidance for self-checking and revising their work. In addition, the unique "practice-in-context" method gets students writing immediately in every chapter and has them consistently applying what they learn to their own writing. The fourth edition goes further in helping students make important connections — between paragraph and essay writing skills, and between following step-by-step models of writing and composing their own work. Revised in consultation with an ESL specialist, this edition is a strong choice for classrooms with non-native speakers. With additional chapters on study skills and research, Writing First is an invaluable tool for students learning the essential skills of college reading and writing.

Writing First: Practice in Context
and Foundations First: Sentences and Paragraphs are part of a two-book workbook series from experienced teachers and authors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell. Both books teach students basic writing and grammar skills in the context of their own writing — where students learn best.
