With a strong focus on writing and the writing process, WORDSMITH: COLLEGE WRITING, Second Edition also groups the methods of development in threes — to better show students the relationships between them, and to give students strategies for using more than one in their papers:

The Showing and Telling chapter covers Description, Narration, and Example.

The Limiting and Ordering chapter covers Definition, Classification, and Process.

The Examining Logical Connections chapter covers Comparison-Contrast, Cause-Effect, and Argument.

Throughout the text, WORDSMITH: A GUIDE TO PARAGRAPHS AND SHORT ESSAYS 2E also provides extensive exercises for students to practice their skills:

Practice and Review Exercises are brief, short-answer style exercises.

Editing, Group and Writing Assignments require working with or creating writing samples.

Progressive Writing Assignments connect writing process concepts from other chapters.

With a focus on writing and a variety of exercises, WORDSMITH: A GUIDE TO COLLEGE WRITING 2E illustrates how the elements of good writing are rarely performed in isolation.
