This version of Writing Today has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)*
Organized by genre--practical for college and career
Writing Today , 3rd Edition introduces individuals to the conventions of writing memoirs, profiles, literary analyses, arguments, research papers, and more. Each chapter features a step-by-step process for composing within a given genre, as well as exemplary professional readings to promote rhetorical knowledge and critical analysis. The 42 short chapters, the chunked writing style, and visual instruction work to ensure that individuals will transfer the skills and strategies practiced to their lives and careers. From its graphic “Quick Start Guides” to its “Write This” prompts, Writing Today challenges individuals to extend the boundaries of their writing abilities as they practice composing for the real world.
* The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.
