Description

Focusing on purpose, situation, techniques, and processes in each self-contained chapter, The Prentice Hall Guide guides students step by step through their assignments.

Organized by writers’ purposes (to explain, to evaluate, to argue, etc.), The Prentice Hall Guide for College Writers foregrounds rhetorical awareness and asks students to consider their purpose, audience, and genre every time they write. In each “writing project” chapter, they are also walked through the process of inventing, researching, drafting, peer reviewing and revising. And in each project chapter, techniques and rhetorical modes particularly useful in accomplishing the writer’s purpose are suggested. This consistent and detailed guidance supports students throughout each of their major course projects and provides all instruction in one place so that they never need to flip between chapters.

Its rhetorical emphasis, practical step-by-step approach, and usable structure make this guide highly teachable and a favorite of large writing programs for over 25 years.
