From the Back Cover:

Kenneth A. Bruffee A Short Course in Writing, Fourth Edition

“In reissuing classic works in composition, Longman celebrates the contributions its authors and their philosophies have made to the discipline. The new Longman Classics in Composition series honors these authors and their work. Providing students with an updated context, each title in the series includes a new foreword, written by one of today’s top scholars, offering a fresh, in-depth analysis of the book and its enduring contributions.”

For over thirty-five years, A Short Course in Writing has helped students explore, explain, and defend their ideas through position papers, collaborative activities, and peer review.

A Short Course in Writing features an emphasis on constructivist reading and writing, sequenced and formal writing exercises, and collaborative exercises designed for in-class use.

John Trimbur and Harvey Kail author a new Foreword that situates the book in its historical context, explaining how the philosophy that informs the book developed and demonstrating how it continues to influence classroom pedagogy to this day.

Features of A Short Course in Writing include sixteen formal writing exercises, more than fifty collaborative exercises designed for in-class use, and an anthology of sixteen readings that include both professional as well as student writings.
