9781439082461: COMP: Read (with Review Card and Bind-In Printed Access Card) (Available Titles CourseMate)

Created entirely by a "student-tested, faculty-approved" review process, COMP: READ is an engaging, rhetorically organized reader to accommodate the diverse learning styles of today's students at a value-based price. Each chapter of COMP: READ clearly defines the learning outcomes for that chapter; it begins with a statement, photograph, and question to encourage critical thinking. Student-tested and faculty-approved Chapter Review Cards can be torn out of the text for easy review and study. A brief handbook with grammar, punctuation, and mechanics is included in the back of the text and online.

Dr. Verne Meyer is an educator and a businessperson.

For over twenty 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 coauthored writing handbooks for students from middle school to college. Dr. Van Rys also has coauthored an award-winning business-writing handbook for workplace professionals, WRITE FOR BUSINESS, with UpWrite Press.

Patrick Sebranek (M.A. University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse) taught English, speech, and multimedia classes for sixteen years at Union Grove High School in Wisconsin. During that time, he served as the English department chair and worked on several district-wide projects, including a writing-across-the-curriculum program and a K-12 writing sequence. He has studied the works of James Moffett, Ken Macrorie, Linda Reif, Nancie Atwell, and many other contemporary educators dealing with writing and learning. Mr. Sebranek is an author and editorial director for the Write Source Educational Publishing House and works closely with teachers and educators on all new and revised handbooks and sourcebooks.
