Across America, in thousands of classrooms, from elementary school to high school, the time-tested sentence-composing approach has given students tools to become better writers. Now the Killgallons present a much anticipated sentence-composing grammar worktext for college writing. GRAMMAR FOR COLLEGE WRITING: A Sentence-Composing Approach presents a new and easier way to understand grammar: NOUN GROUP: The Naming Tools VERB GROUP: The Narrating Tools ADJECTIVE GROUP: The Describing Tools ADVERB GROUP: The Explaining Tools Within each group, using model sentences by authors, students learn and practice words, phrases, and clauses that share the group's function. The Killgallons' accessible approach develops students' use of twenty-one grammatical tools to build sentences like those of recognizable authors. All tools are practiced through the Killgallons' signature methods: matching, unscrambling, combining, imitating, exchanging, expanding. Each tool is introduced with a clear definition and characteristics; practiced through six varied sentence-composing activities; then applied in an academic or creative composition that spotlights the tool. Students learn from model sentences chosen for two reasons: their grammatical structure (the sentence in the story) and their interesting content (the story in the sentence). GRAMMAR FOR COLLEGE WRITING gives students the chance to absorb and replicate the grammatical tools used by John Steinbeck, J. K. Rowling, Ernest Hemingway, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou, Truman Capote, Stephen King, and hundreds more. This worktext works beyond preparing first-year college students for college writing. It is well suited for many contexts: Before College- Students in honors or AP classes Students in grammar or creative writing electives. During College- Students in required first-year writing courses, or electives in grammar, rhetoric, style, linguistics, literary language, or creative writing Prospective English teachers in methods, grammar, or linguistics courses. After College- Teachers participating in curriculum or in-service workshops Teachers wanting a self-study approach to learning grammar to improve their own or their students' writing. An online instructor's manual includes background information, advice, tips, resources, and the original professional sentences used for activities. GRAMMAR FOR COLLEGE WRITING: A Sentence-Composing Approach is the most comprehensive worktext yet from the originators of that approach: the Killgallons. Guide your students toward mastery of the "grammar of the greats" by inviting hundreds of great authors to serve as their mentors-and the Killgallons as their guides.

TECHNIQUES FOR COLLEGE WRITING: THE THESIS STATEMENT AND BEYOND is a brief rhetoric that empowers students as writers by giving them the tools they need to create a precise and well-focused thesis. Using the thesis statement as the lens through which students can approach the entire thinking and writing process, TECHNIQUES is divided into three parts that build upon one another: Part I--Thinking Through the Thesis Statement, Part II--Thinking Through Your Writing Assignment, and Part III--Writing Beyond the Composition Classroom. A wide range of journal articles, book excerpts, student essays, paintings, magazine ads, poetry, and short stories make the text accessible to students, and Thinking Through a Reading questions promote active reading and in-class discussion. In-chapter practice exercises, writing applications, revision tools, and writing assignments help students gain confidence so that they can begin to incorporate the techniques they've learned in the book into their own personal writing styles Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Engagement is trendy. Although paired most often with community, diverse invocations of engagement have gained cache, capturing longstanding shifts toward new practices of knowledge making that both reflect and facilitate multiple ways of being an academic. Engagement functions as a gloss for these shifts—addressing more expansive understandings of where, how, and with whom we research, teach, and partner. This book examines these shifts, locating them within socio-economic trends within and beyond the higher educational landscape, with particular focus on how they have been enacted within the diverse subfields of writing studies. In so doing, this book provides concrete models for enacting these new responsive practices, thereby encouraging scholars to examine how they can facilitate writing for social action through taking positions, building relationships, and crossing boundaries.

Composition research consistently demonstrates that the social context of writing determines the majority of conventions any writer must observe. Still, most universities organize the required first-year composition course as if there were an intuitive set of general writing "skills" usable across academic and work-world settings. In College Writing and Beyond: A New Framework for University Writing Instruction, Anne Beaufort reports on a longitudinal study comparing one student’s experience in FYC, in history, in engineering, and in his post-college writing. Her data illuminate the struggle of college students to transfer what they learn about "general writing" from one context to another. Her findings suggest ultimately not that we must abolish FYC, but that we must go beyond even genre theory in reconceiving it. Accordingly, Beaufort would argue that the FYC course should abandon its hope to teach a sort of general academic discourse, and instead should systematically teach strategies of responding to contextual elements that impinge on the writing situation. Her data urge attention to issues of learning transfer, and to developmentally sound linkages in writing instruction within and across disciplines. Beaufort advocates special attention to discourse community theory, for its power to help students perceive and understand the context of writing.

This book gives students an answer to the question, “What does my professor want from this essay?” In lively, direct language, it explains the process of creating “a clearly-written argument, based on evidence, about the meaning, power, or structure of a literary work.” Using a single poem by William Carlos Williams as the basis for the process of writing a paper about a piece of literature, it walks students through the processes of reading, brainstorming, researching secondary sources, gathering evidence, and composing and editing the paper. Writing Essays About Literature is designed to strengthen argumentation skills and deepen understanding of the relationships between the reader, the author, the text, and critical interpretations. Its lessons about clarity, precision, and the importance of providing evidence will have wide relevance for student writers.

- Engaging students with the power of language in everyday life. Ideal for the composition classroom, the thematic focus on language in Language Awareness allows students to study compelling topics such as "Prejudice, Stereotypes, and Language" (Chapter 8) and "The Language of Persuasion: Politics and Advertising" (Chapter 12), while fostering an appreciation of the richness and vitality of the English language. Chosen particularly for their insight and appeal to students, the 70 readings -- by well-known writers and language experts -- encourage students to think carefully about the many dimensions of language, culture, and communication, and to use their own language more responsibly and effectively in speech and in writing.- 4 full chapters on writing. Language Awareness offers more writing coverage than any other reader of its kind, and this edition includes four new chapters. Along with three student papers, these 70 pages on the essentials of college writing introduce students to the writing process and cover the types of writing most often assigned to first year college students: writing from experience, writing from reading, and writing from research (with MLA style documentation).- Documents for analysis and writing after every essay and every chapter. Called Language in Action, the documents that appear after every single essay include advertisements, screen-shots of Web pages, cartoons, corporate documents, poems, magazine quizzes, humorous excerpts, and other real-life uses of public language. These documents are surrounded by editorial apparatus that invites students to practice the critical thinking they've just seen modeled in the essays. Every chapter now endswith one of two kinds of casebook: Cases-in-Point are groups of essays tightly focused around a controversial theme in language study, such as who decides what grammar is correct; Language-in-Use are sets of documents for comp
