The Longwood guide to writing
Longman, jul 19, 2004 - 695 páginas
Reflecting the authors' fifty years of combined teaching experience, The Longwood Guide to Writing is among the most accessible, up-to-date, and authoritative aims-based rhetorics on the market. This guide introduces readers to all phases of the writing process and then provides "writing occasions"--projects that encourage the reader to practice what they've learned and improve their own writing. The "occasions" include writing personal essays, informative and evaluative essays, essays from and about literature, and position, persuasive, and problem/solution essays. Each of these core writing chapters features five to seven professional readings, discusses the rhetorical triangle, and follows a student through their writing process. Students also learn effective ways to conduct research, write with sources, take essay exams, and create portfolios. Ideal for individuals interested in gaining a practical understanding of the writing process.
