Part One of a 2-text series – This text is jam-packed with writing activities for a student-centered writing course. Simply put, students learn to write by writing, and these books by David and Peggy Kehe keep the students focused on improving their writing from the first to the last minute of the class hour. Each volume includes three different kinds of activities:
- Rhetorical Modes: The students follow a careful sequence of steps from preparing the first draft to writing the final essay. The advanced modes in Part Two are Process, Cause and Effect, Extended Definition, and Argumentation.
- Fluency Writing: In pairs and triads, the students exchange information on a contemporary topic. They finish the activity by summarizing in writing what they have talked about.
- Grammar Problems and Terminology: In this section, the students review those pesky grammar problems that always show up in the process of putting thoughts into grammatically accurate sentences.
The Second Edition features a free downloadable Teacher’s Book and Answer Key.
