Description

With efficient and engaging instruction and a consistent focus on why writing matters in the real world, Real Writing delivers a powerful message to students: Good writing skills are both achievable and essential. Concise Four Basics boxes and engaging paragraph- and essay-writing chapters present writing instruction in clear, manageable increments. The Four Most Serious Errors and other sentence-level chapters cover grammar in a lively and supportive way, with abundant opportunities for practice and application. As always, Susan Anker encourages students to connect what they learn with their own goals and with the needs and expectations of the larger world. In Profiles of Success, former students, now employed in a variety of professions, speak frankly about their experiences in school and after graduation, with examples of the types of writing their current jobs require. In this edition, Anker does far more to build students' critical thinking, critical reading, and argument skills and adds innovative new assignments, readings, and visuals. Real Writing with Readings is now integrated with LearningCurve — online, adaptive quizzing activities that reinforce what students learn in the book.

"The real applications make the lights go on in the students' eyes, and that means so much."
— Anne Marie Prendergast, Bergen Community College
