With carefully crafted instruction, engaging student models, and plentiful practice exercises, this best-selling text continues to provide the most effective paragraph-essay level writing instruction available. EVERGREEN is structured around Susan Fawcett's proven MAP (model-analysis-practice) format--a careful, guiding pedagogy featuring minimal inductive instruction followed by varied practice designed to improve students' confidence and learning outcomes. Known for its superior essay coverage, EVERGREEN demonstrates each of the nine rhetorical patterns with two student sample essays (one in the third person, and one in the first person), and a graphic organizer. New to the Tenth Anniversary Edition is coverage of personal error tracking, including a new chapter, pull-out chart, and integrated exercises for each grammar and spelling chapter to help students identify, track and correct their own errors. The new edition also features an even stronger emphasis on critical thinking, with more exercises on critical thinking and viewing, and many more Teaching Tips designed to prompt critical thinking. Five new readings include selections by Jhumpa Lahiri, Malcolm Gladwell, and Ellen Goodman. Available with InfoTrac Student Collections http://gocengage.com/infotrac.

Susan Fawcett started teaching English at Bronx Community College right after she finished college. The idea for the EVERGREEN 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.Review:
"Evergreen uses high-interest readings and examples while it manages to teach the fundamental writing skills that these at-risk students require."
"My students sold me on the book.... To find a textbook that students feel is worthy of the cost they have to pay for it is the very best endorsement I could give a book."
