Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The Business Writer functions both as a teaching tool and a lifelong reference to help students master the skills they need for effective workplace writing. The text's colorful, handbook-style design brings a fresh, new approach to teaching business writing by presenting material in one- or two-page spreads with bulleted lists, brief explanations, summary boxes, and graphic organizers that deliver information to readers quickly and clearly. Comprehensive and practical coverage--including a focus on the "Seven Traits of Effective Writing," detailed guidelines, models, and checklists--prepares students to complete a wide range of workplace writing tasks. In addition, a wealth of end-of-chapter exercises enables students to practice their writing skills, while helpful activities give students opportunities for effective oral communication. The text's consistent emphasis on the "Seven Traits of Effective Writing" (strong ideas, logical organization, conversational voice, clear words, smooth sentences, correct copy, and reader-friendly design) provides a benchmark for students as they plan and revise their work. It also helps instructors save time as they grade assignments. Annotated sample materials in each chapter show students the key features of typical workplace documents. The authors provide the latest information on using technology to research, write, and design effective documents in both print and electronic formats. Chapter 4, "Writing for Diversity," discusses how to write for individuals from different cultures or with limited English-language skills. Chapter 50, "Addressing ESL Issues," offers specialized guidance on sentence structure, word choice, grammar, and mechanics. Exercises at the end of each chapter help students think critically about the material they have just learned and apply that knowledge to various writing assignments. Bookseller Inventory #

About the Author: Dr. John Van Rys (Ph.D. Dalhousie University, M.A./B.A. University of Western Ontario) has taught composition, business writing, creative writing, and literature courses to college students for more than 25 years at Dordt College in Sioux Center, Iowa. He has been teaching as a full professor in the English Department at Redeemer University College in Hamilton, Ontario, since 2005, where he also pursues scholarly work in Canadian literature. For over 20 years, he has worked on writing-across-the-curriculum theory and practice, on connections between workplace and academic writing, and on strategies for strengthening varied literacies in students (from reading to research to visual literacy). With Write Source Educational Publishing and Cengage Learning, he has co-authored writing handbooks for students from middle school to college. Dr. Van Rys also has co-authored an award-winning business-writing handbook for workplace professionals, WRITE FOR BUSINESS, with UpWrite Press.
