The spirit of THE WRITER'S WAY remains in the ninth edition, as do its two core principles: (1) good writing begins when students know their audience and write for the right reasons; and (2) knowing their audience and having good reasons to write will teach students everything they need to know about technique. Based on a “whole language approach,” THE WRITER'S WAY is a dynamic, process-centered paperback rhetoric with readings. While this text is intended to be used in the classroom, it's very much based on the concept that there is little difference between writing in school and writing in the “real world.” Offering frank advice in a supportive, encouraging tone, Rawlins and Metzger lead students step by step through the writing process, from pre-writing to polishing the final draft. Each student text is packaged with a free Cengage Essential Reference Card to the MLA HANDBOOK, Eighth Edition.
