As part of Fawcett's best-selling developmental writing series, Evergreen earns consistent acclaim for its clear, step-by-step instruction, engaging exercises, and high-interest readings for paragraph-to-essay level courses. The text's longstanding popularity stems from its solid foundation in the process and modeling approach to writing, plus its flexible organization. Following the advice of reviewers and users across the country, the author has added new critical-thinking assignments, revised the majority of existing practice sets and models, and integrated more dynamic, contemporary visuals throughout the text. Compelling and sometimes controversial images stimulate students to write and discuss their responses.
Chapter 1 features a revised introduction designed to increase students' interest in the writing process and, consequently, the likelihood that they will use the textbook. In addition, a new chapter on research prepares students for other composition and college-level courses, covering such topics as how to avoid plagiarism, write summaries, include quotes, paraphrase, find information using the library and the Internet, and cite MLA sources.

Susan Fawcett started teaching English at Bronx Community College right after she finished college. The idea for the books grew out of her frustration that adults needed remediation but the only material available had a tone more appropriate for middle school students. She occasionally teaches a class in Miami, where she lives in the winter and writes full time.
