A complete course in writing, in one comprehensive volume
Acclaimed for its clarity and accessibility, Student’s Book of College English, Fourteenth Edition offers a rhetoric, reader, research guide, and handbook in one cohesive and efficient presentation. The rhetoric appeals to students with its straightforward and jargon-free style. Instructors appreciate its coverage of the writing process, the rhetorical modes (including argumentation), and its chapter on writing about literature.  The reader includes selections from sources ranging from academia to the Internet on timely topics that pique students’ interest. The in-depth coverage of research methods, as well as the complete treatment of grammar and usage, make an ancillary handbook unnecessary, a cost-savings enjoyed by students and teachers alike.

 

Also available with MyWritingLab™

This title is also available with MyWritingLab—an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to engage students and improve results.

About the Author:

David Skwire, with degrees from the University of Wisconsin—Madison and Cornell University, taught composition, creative writing, and American literature at Cuyahoga Community College for twenty-five years. He also served on the faculties of Tufts University and Temple University. He acknowledges, however, that his job of most interest to students was a two-year stint as a writer of humorous greeting cards. In addition to his coauthorship of Student’s Book of College English , he is author of the successful Writing with a Thesis . Now retired, Skwire lives near Cleveland.

Harvey S. Wiener taught for many years as professor of English at LaGuardia Community College. He has served in a variety of administrative
positions, most recently as Vice President at Marymount Manhattan College. Dr. Wiener has directed the basic writing program at Pennsylvania State University and has taught at Teachers College, Columbia University, Brooklyn College, Queensborough Community College, and the State University of New York at Stony Brook. A Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Brooklyn College, Wiener holds a Ph.D. in Renaissance literature from Fordham University. He was founding president of the Council of Writing Program Administrators and was chair of the Teaching of Writing Division of the Modern Language Association. Wiener is the author of many books on reading and writing for college students and their teachers, including The Writing Room. His book for parents, Any Child Can Write, was a Book-of-the-Month Club alternate. His most challenging writing assignment was a test to quality as Chief Writer for a network soap opera by developing the content for six weeks of episodes. He does not regret having lost the job to someone else.
