Overview

For courses in Developmental English with students of varying skill levels, or those in need of additional writing practice prior to college-level writing.

 

A highly visual, theme-based approach to writing that meets you where you are, and guides you to where you need to be.

 

The Writer’s World series integrates essential elements that are simply not found in other writing books – a stimulating visual program, thoughtful coverage for nonnative speakers, and effective strategies that address the skill levels of all readers. Authors Lynne Gaetz and Suneeti Phadke draw upon their more than 30 years of combined teaching experience to reach as many readers as possible, by meeting their needs and addressing their individual interests and abilities. The authors’ innovative instruction seamlessly infuses material for both native and nonnative speakers, while their exercises and activities encourage active participation and collaboration. The engaging design, open layout, and dynamic images support visual learners and prompt critical thinking.

 

Available to package with The Writer’s World: Essays with Enhanced Reading Strategies, 4th Edition (Books a la Carte loose-leaf edition), MyLab Writing is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work in tandem with the text to engage students and improve results. MyLab Writing is ideal for courses requiring additional writing skills practice and assessment.
