Everyday English recognizes often overlooked connections between basic writers and second language writers -- their unfamiliarity with standard written English, their inexperience with academic writing and reading in English, and the diversity of their ethnic, cultural, and linguistic backgrounds – and is designed to meet their common needs. The text works to build on the strengths that such students already possess – familiarity with language, critical thinking skills, and a desire to succeed in school – by offering them useful, thoughtful practice in the kinds of writing that will make them successful in the academic environment.
