Based on a "whole language approach," THE WRITER'S WAY is a dynamic, process-centered paperback rhetoric with readings. This text recognizes that students learn best by doing, and writers learn best when inspired by compelling reasons to write, aided by strong examples, and reinforced by immediate personal rewards. With frank advice offered in a supportive, encouraging tone, Rawlins and Metzger lead students step by step through the writing process, from pre-writing to polishing the final draft.

About the Author:

Jack P. Rawlins (Ph.D., Yale University) is Professor of English at the California State University in Chico, where he has taught courses in composition, language education, linguistics, and literature. Writing in the areas of composition pedagogy, Victorian literature, science fiction, and university governance, he has been published by the University of California Press, the Southern Illinois University Press, College English, Studies in English Literature, and Newsweek.

Review:

"I have been a loyal fan of the book because students report: "It's not like reading a textbook." "Rawlins is funny and it's like he is talking to me directly." "Rawlins doesn't go on and on but gets right to the point."

"Overall, I appreciate the approach of this book, which is much more grounded in actual student experiences, perceptions, and writing processes than the typical "rhetoric" textbook. THE WRITER'S WAY speaks to students where they are. Most helpful, I think, are the study tips at the beginning. Few textbooks bother to address the basics of sound study habits."

"THE WRITER'S WAY introduces and builds upon methods, modes, and purposes for writing, enabling teachers to emphasize to students that learning to write is a constant process of growth and accretion-a process that never actually ends."
