9781305659650: The Writer's Harbrace Handbook (The Harbrace Handbook Series)

THE WRITER'S HARBRACE HANDBOOK, 6TH EDITION, is grounded in the belief that an understanding of the rhetorical situation--the writer, reader, message, context, and opportunity for writing--provides the best starting point for effective writing and reading. This comprehensive handbook guides student writers in employing that rhetorical understanding as they choose the most effective information to include, the best arrangement and delivery of that information, and the most appropriate language to use. THE WRITER'S HARBRACE HANDBOOK also provides several sample student papers in various disciplines, along with instruction for successfully completing similar assignments. This edition has been updated to address the criteria in the WPA Outcomes Statement for First-Year Composition (version 3.0).
