Description : In this fourth edition of WRITING IN THE WORKS, the authors have maintained their dual focus on writing as both an academic and practical tool. At the same time, they have updated the content and the spirit of the book for the contemporary writing environment. Students learn to write for the digital world—where visual and verbal messages are inseparable—and do so by exploring serious ideas that will engage a real-world audience. Throughout the book, and in three new chapters, the authors emphasize the skills of synthesizing, defining, and evaluating—skills central to the development of good academic writing and good real-world writing. Students are encouraged to take chances, think big thoughts, and practice skills which will prepare them to ride the global communications wave as more confident, capable writers. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2016 MLA HANDBOOK, Eighth Edition.

Description : WRITING IN THE WORKS (WITW) uses a real-world writing approach to intrigue and inspire students, showing them how to produce good writing (written work that people in the world at large would want to read) in a range of genres. The heart of the book is its 11 Assignment chapters, each covering a different real-world genre such as application essay, news article, editorial, proposal, public service message, and film review. WITW engages students and motivates them with its sophisticated visuals, timely readings, and obvious relevance and connection to the world beyond the university. Throughout, the authors treat students as serious writers, capable of writing for an actual audience beyond that of a composition instructor. Students write as if they will submit what they write for publication--or actually to submit what they write for publication. This real-world writing approach raises the stakes for students. They take the tasks more seriously when the assignments do not seem contrived and artificial and when this possibility of publication is in play. In fulfilling the real-world task, they learn genre conventions, audience, purpose, research, critical thinking, and style -- skills directly transferable to the students’ college writing and to the writing they will do for work and community. This edition has been updated to reflect guidelines from the 2009 MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers, Seventh Edition.

Description : Writing in the Works—an innovative rhetoric, reader, research guide, and handbook—treats students as writers rather than as students who write. Throughout the text, engaging assignments encourage students to view themselves as writers in many different contexts—in their personal lives, in their academic careers, and in their roles as group and community members—thus providing them with important, satisfying, and practical reasons to write. A comprehensive ancillary package complements the text with dynamic learning tools for students and time-saving, course management resources for instructors. The supplements include the Online Study Center for students, the WriteSpace online writing program, and the SMARTHINKING live, online tutoring service. Ten assignment chapters—organized from least to most complex and from personal to public writing—present a genre within one or more rhetorical modes. Students learn, for example, elements of narration through memoirs and news stories. Accompanying writing tasks teach students how to effectively structure different types of writing—including exposition, narration, argumentation, analysis, and persuasion pieces. Students also learn about the role of research and visual aids in writing. Contemporary and topical readings from such publications as The New Yorker, Popular Science, Utne Reader, Chicago Tribune, and a variety of web sites provide diverse writing models from professional and student writers. Interviews with featured writers—such as Roger Ebert, Susan Orlean, and Antonya Nelson—give students an inside view of the writing process presented in a particular chapter, as well as the author's motivation and purpose. The Visual Literacy feature in each chapter asks students to look at and analyze a variety of images—photographs, drawings, paintings, and cartoons—and how they work with the written text. The Research Paths component in every chapter encourages students to think about how a writer might apply research to a specific problem or inquiry. The documentation chapter shows students how to cite sources in the most up-to-date MLA and APA formats and provides a student model documented clearly in both formats. A grammar and style handbook appears at the end of the text and can be used as a step-by-step guide to build grammar knowledge (with brief exercises to check student progress), as a reference handbook, or as a grammar review tool.
