Essay Writing For Canadian Students W Readings

About This Product

Description

All you need: This 3-in-1 guide to writing includes student-friendly writing instruction, writing samples, and a grammar and mechanics handbook.

 

Essay Writing for Canadian Students, a popular writing guide for 30 years, presents the writing process as a systematic set of procedures for planning, drafting, and revising deductively organized academic essays. It stresses the analytical skills students need to explore the subjects they write about and ultimately to write clear and coherent papers. 

* The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.

Features

Part 1 Rhetoric

The Rhetoric section takes students through the process of writing and revising a wide range of essays and writing assignments: summaries and essays in various disciplines (Chapters 2, 3, 4, and 5); essays analyzing literature, comparing, evaluating, and persuading (Chapters 6, 7, 8, and 9); and research papers (Chapters 10, 11, and 12). Part 1 emphasizes the importance of reading and thinking analytically.

 

Part 2 Readings

We have selected essays published in a wide range of sources both to illustrate the types of writing we discuss in the Rhetoric section and to provide timely subjects for students to write about.

 

Part 3 Handbook for Final Editing

The Handbook gives students the tools they need to recognize and correct problems in sentence structure, grammar, punctuation, and format.

 

How to Use This Book

Because it serves as a combined rhetoric, reader, and handbook, Essay Writing for Canadian Students has been used successfully in a wide variety of courses, from college and university writing courses, to introductory literature to advanced writing. The scope and structure of the book allow you to tailor your course to suit your own teaching style and the needs of your students. Some instructors prefer to begin by systematically reviewing handbook material on sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation. Others plunge their students into writing essays, assigning handbook material as needed. Still others may ask students to read and respond informally to some of the published writings before assigning the first formal essay.

Part 1 Rhetoric

In this section of the book, we have:

  • Expanded and updated the discussion of reading analytically and writing summaries (Chapter 2) to better reflect how those two activities are interrelated and incorporated into essay writing.

  • Revised and reconfigured the discussion of evaluation essays (Chapter 8) to better reflect current topics and events.

  • Expanded   and reconfigured the discussion of persuasive essays (Chapter 9), emphasizing Canadian content and addressing a new sample student essay on “Canadian National Identity.”

  • Added a new chapter on “Writing Research Essays Across the Curriculum” to emphasize the importance and demand for writing skills in various disciplines, and to highlight the growing focus on analysing and evaluating the role and use of technology and social media in the Western world. 

Part 2 Readings

About one quarter of the Readings are new to this edition.

  • The Published Writings centre on four broad subject areas: language/literature, health/medicine/addiction, social justice/environmentalism/ globalization, and multiculturalism/personal identity/sports, with interesting links between these categories. Students therefore have a wealth of material to analyze, compare, and evaluate.

  • The new Sample Persuasive Essay,  Evaluation Essay, and Research Essay show the results of the processes of gathering material, drafting, and revising covered in Chapters 8, 9, 10, 11, and 12.

 

Part 3 Handbook for Final Editing

Throughout, we’ve added, deleted, and changed material to make explanations and examples clearer, more useful, and more interesting.

The exercises previously interspersed throughout the Handbook section, along with the Answer Key to these exercises, have been placed in the Instructor’s Manual for this edition.
