Wordsmithwas written to counter students’ objections to textbooks being too dry, too irrelevant, and too big, and is Pearson’s value-priced option that students will appreciate across the developmental writing curriculum.

Pamela Arlov wrote the Wordsmith series for instructors who genuinely want to connect with their students. To engage students and enable instructors to meet students where they are, Pam Arlov provides students with just the right balance of instruction and practice via relevant instruction, plenty of visuals, and an inviting writing style that students really respond to. Wordsmith covers the rhetorical modes, is realistic, and does not overwhelm students with too much information.
