Description

In Resources for Writers, Betsy Long provides students with the "full resources" needed to become better writers: meaningful skill instruction, extensive practice, extra support, a global focus, and contemporary-themed readings.

Teaching writing through a structured, formulaic step-by step approach (being concise, credible, clear, and correct), Resources for Writers integrates the writing process with the rhetorical modes to move students from paragraph development to the final essay.  The instructional discourse, abundant exercises, and numerous writing assignments in each chapter are linked by the cultural literacy theme of that particular chapter to engage students and broaden the context of writing. The grammar section, refined in the fourth edition, also contains various and abundant exercises designed to assist students in mastering grammar skills and avoiding common pitfalls.
