For college courses in Composition and Rhetoric.

Revealing the writing process through interactive learning
Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond presents writing, reading, and research processes dynamically, using a variety of visuals to illustrate how readers interact with texts and how writers compose. One of the first textbook authors to focus on multimedia  composing, Lester Faigley employs his own advice to engage students in every step of the writing process–for both college composition and everyday life–and pulls back the curtain on how writers work.

Aligned with the learning goals for a first-year college writing course identified in the 2014 Outcomes Statement from the Council of Writing Program Administrators, Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond gives students the support they need to succeed in first-year composition, in their other courses, and in their careers. In the Fourth Edition, students can also practice and explore what they’ve learned chapter-by-chapter with interactive MyWritingLab tools, assignments and projects.  

Also available with MyWritingLab™
This text is also available with MyWritingLab™ – an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.

From the Back Cover:

You’ll never look at a writing guide the same way again!

Writing: A Guide for College and Beyond uses written instruction and visual tools to teach students how to write effectively. This revolutionary new aims-based writing guide brings together Lester Faigley’s clear and inviting teaching style with Dorling Kindersley’s accessible and striking design. Unique, dynamic presentations of reading, writing, and research processes speak to students with many learning styles and help students become successful writers in college and beyond.

Here’s What Teachers Are Saying

Writing has managed a great feat–to gather together under one cover what is essential to the craft of expository writing at the college level and to do so in an amazing and colorful layout.” — Gary Enns, Cerro Coso Community College

“I’d describe Writing as a rhetoric that’s actually rooted in rhetorical principles and genre theory. It eliminates much of the wordy instruction commonly used in writing texts in favor of a distillation of essential information and instruction with numerous examples.” — Jeffrey Andelora, Mesa Community College

“I think this text succeeds to a better degree than one that tries to explain the writing process solely via a narrative. I think showing handwritten brainstorming, showing notations on a first draft, showing attempts to create a good beginning (and multiple mediocre beginnings) are all good.” — Larry Riley, Ball State University

Writing treats students respectfully. It situates them as fellow explorers. . . . It asks them to draw on their own experiences a great deal throughout the text and, along with being ‘inviting,’ that strategy clearly tells readers that they are co-constructors of knowledge, that their experiences are valid.” — Patricia Webb, Arizona State University (reviewer)

“I believe that the selection of readings that accompany each of the kinds of writing (reflecting, observing, informing, etc.) are superb choices, because their subjects are contemporary and of interest to students and also provide a variety of genres–from articles to essays to blogs and leaflets.” — Martha Petry, Jackson Community College

“One of the problems with most textbooks is they overwhelm readers with written text; this textbook doesn’t do that. More importantly, the images in this book aren’t merely eye candy; they help illustrate/teach the ideas discussed on each page.” — Brett McInelly, Brigham Young University

And Here’s What Students Are Saying

“This is one of the most helpful, thorough, and resourceful texts I’ve seen thus far.” — Lauren Olsen, Castleton State College

“I thought the chapters did an excellent job of combining visual and textual explanations of the material. The combined presentation of the two gave me a greater understanding of the concepts.” — John Weiss, Jr., Ball State University

“College students have a lot of reading in every class and this text is more interesting and to the point. It is not busy work.” — Missi Dreyer, Grand Valley State University

“This book is more eye catching to me, and more informational. I will actually read this book!” — Abbey Kline, Ball State University

“I like the fact that with the visual pictures I could understand the readings better.” — Jorge Arias, Grand Valley State University
