Writing for Success in College and Beyond is a dynamic and practical English Composition textbook; an introduction to the art and discipline of written expression. Students will learn how to read critically, conduct research, develop arguments, integrate and cite evidence, draft and revise writing, and craft powerful prose. This innovative new title creates a writing lab environment and includes an integrated toolset for idea generation, drafting, revisions, peer review, finishing, and instructor feedback.
Our English Composition textbook is a highly interactive writing workshop structured around four major writing projects and focusing on six broad thematic areas. Engaged with and inspired by their selected source material, students learn to pose questions, interact with the works of others, and build arguments. Each writing project contains smaller, sequenced components that are categorized into phases that will extend across chapters. The approach emphasizes practice and participation and is based on the author’s experience running the undergraduate writing lab at Duke University.
