Using her unique M-A-P approach (Model-Analysis-Practice), Susan Fawcett's books have guided hundreds of thousands of students through the writing process, from foundations of grammar, mechanics, and spelling through writing clear sentences and well-organized paragraphs. Her inductive approach; plentiful, high-interest student models and practices; and contemporary readings engage and motivate students. This new Eleventh Edition of GRASSROOTS triples the writing coverage-with new Chapters 5 and 6, "Thinking Through the Writing Patterns." Also featured are new critical-thinking and viewing assignments throughout; eight fresh reading selections focused on issues and ideas, not narrative; and a new emphasis on academic and third-person writing.

Susan Fawcett is the author of two market-leading college composition textbooks: Evergreen: A Guide to Writing (11th Edition) and Grassroots: The Writer's Workbook (12th Edition). Both texts have won the peer-juried McGuffey Award for sustained excellence, presented by the Text & Academic Authors Association. With degrees in English literature from Ohio University and Columbia University, New York, Ms. Fawcett's honors include a Fulbright Fellowship to Birkbeck College, University of London, and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. She found her calling as a professor of English and Director of the Writing Lab at Bronx Community College, City University of New York, where, dismayed that existing textbooks didn't help her students learn, she began creating her own worksheets that soon became Grassroots. Ms. Fawcett gave up her tenure to write fulltime--textbooks, poetry, and articles on education and health. She has led faculty workshops throughout the United States and in South Africa.
