9780321333261: The New Century Handbook

The New Century Handbook, Canadian Edition, is a handbook for a new generation. Developed with computer users in mind, this is the first handbook to thoroughly integrate an awareness of, and instruction on, the benefits of computer technology to the writing and research processes.

This comprehensive resource for post-secondary student writers shows students how to plan, compose, and revise; how to research and formulate arguments; and how to write for different disciplines and special purposes. At a time when many students arrive at university without adequate grounding in "the basics," this handbook provides thorough coverage of grammar, style, diction, and punctuation, and features a special section on ESL problems.

In an increasingly visual world, the handbook shows how to apply principles of document design. It repeatedly emphasizes both the conventional and the rhetorical aspects of good writing, pointing out how even small details should reflect the writer's consideration of audience, persona, genre, and goals.
