For first-year English composition courses.

Focusing on purpose, process, patterns, and situation in each self-contained chapter, this perpetually fresh writing guide stands alone in ease of use and teachability.

This time-tested writing guide leads students through the writing process for each of the purpose-based assignment chapters, giving them consistent, detailed guidance in one place to complete their assignments without having to flip between chapters.  In addition to the convenient structure, the high-interest readings by "name brand" authors and the student models, each in both first and final draft, have made this guide a favorite for over 25 years.  (This version is rendered "brief" by omitting the handbook section.)
