This interactive multimedia program teaches all aspects of grammar and writing-featuring extensive examples (with animation and audio clips) and more than 4,500 interactive exercises that provide immediate feedback and additional explanation. A new section covers all stages of the writing process from prewriting to the final draft. Four student peers add audio commentary on the writing process as they proceed through each stage. Through the word-processing application being used by the student, the CD-ROM can launch over one hundred customized writing templates that guide students through writing exercises in sentence, paragraph, and essay creation. More than an electronic exercise program, WRITER'S RESOURCES helps students develop the necessary skills for choosing effective words, writing structurally balanced sentences, and developing detailed paragraphs as well as writing a summary, an analysis, and an argumentative essay. The CD-ROM also provides a link to Wadsworth's propriety course management system, iLrn (formerly BCA), through which instructors may track student progress on the CD-ROM. iLrn (formerly BCA) also contains 2000 additional diagnostic, competency, and mastery test items on grammar and punctuation, with feedback.
