Writing Skills Handbook is written for undergraduate writing courses in which the instructors wish to spend little or no class time on matters of grammar and mechanics, yet want their students to have a concise, accessible reference tool to use independently for help with their most common writing problems. Using non-technical language, the authors state rules as briefly as possible, provide short, simple examples and sentences, and present a clear, succinct overview of the composing process. This presentation encourages students to use the book while they are actively writing, leaving the instructor free to explore more advanced writing issues with the class. Deliberately brief, with no exercises, the handbook offers an overview of the research paper and provides models of the most frequently used citations. Throughout the text, lists and charts conveniently summarize and review key concepts. Writing Skills Handbook is part of the Houghton Mifflin English Essentials series.
