Product Description

For courses in Writing.


Grounded in current theory and research, yet practical and teachable.

The Allyn & Bacon Guide to Writing takes a distinctive pedagogical approach that integrates composition research with rhetorical theory and insights from writing across the curriculum. It treats writing and reading both as rhetorical acts and as processes of problem posing, inquiry, critical thinking, analysis, and argument. Its aim is to evoke the kind of deep learning that allows students to transfer compositional and rhetorical skills across disciplines and professional fields. Teachers and students value its clear and coherent explanations, engaging classroom activities, and flexible sequence of aims-based writing assignments that help writers produce effective, idea-rich essays in academic and civic genres. Numerous examples of student and professional writing accompany this thorough guide to the concepts and skills needed for writing, researching, and editing in college and beyond.


The Allyn & Bacon Guide to Writing, 8th Edition is also available via Revelâ„¢, an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience. Learn more.
