Fresh, vibrant, concise, and affordable, the Fifth Edition of AT A GLANCE: ESSAYS focuses on writing correct, effective essays in specific and combined rhetorical patterns, and features the writing process with emphasis on revision; twenty-one integrated professional and student essays verified by classroom testing to compel reading, provoke discussion, and inspire writing; a handbook chapter supported by a strong Student Companion Site; documented writing (two chapters) with the 2009 MLA Update and an illustrated ten-step approach; optional reading-based writing of summaries, reactions, and two-part responses (to promote critical thinking by linking reading to writing); and optional career-related writing to accommodate career-minded students and career-conscious programs.

About the Author:

Lee Brandon is the author of twelve college English textbooks with Cengage Learning, including the best-selling series, Sentences, Paragraphs, and Beyond with Integrated Readings, and Paragraphs and Essays with Integrated Readings and the highly successful At a Glance series. He has served as chair of the English Department at Mt. San Antonio College, where he taught for more than thirty years and occasionally still teaches. Few authors are as active in the promotion of their books as Lee Brandon, who regularly visits schools across the country and presents at professional conferences. Lee also has to his credit poems and short stories in magazines; songs recorded and in sheet music; a best-selling musical play for elementary school students (in print with Lorenz Music); a play produced by a college drama department; a published Ford Foundation grant project; a chapbook of ballads about his youth, Oklahoma, My Sweet Sorrow; a chapbook of ballads about his experience teaching for ten years in a high-security California women's prison, Butterflies on Barbwire; and newspaper articles about travel, adventures, and whimsical experiences.

Review:

"At a Glance "is easy to follow and understand and because of this, some of the fear of writing can be eliminated."

"The writing exercises and the suggested topics are a strength of this series. The exercises concerning the identification of types of sentences were most helpful for my students. My students find the suggested topics most helpful as they are generic enough to allow individual interpretation."
