Focus on Writing: Paragraphs and Essays is a clear, inviting text that engages students visually, demonstrates concepts with color and highlighting, and offers students the support and coverage they need to write well in college. Focus on Writing offers the unique self-assessment tool TEST (Topic sentence, Evidence, Summary statement, and Transitions), which works clearly and simply to motivate students and empowers them to become capable writers and self-editors. In this revision, best-selling authors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell provide more support for moving from paragraph to essay, more step-by-step coverage of the writing process, and more diverse examples, exercises, and models, making the text both student-friendly and thorough.
