PLEASE PROVIDE COURSE INFORMATION
The new edition of The Practical Stylist retains its traditional readable approach to teaching composition but contains extensive revisions to address the writing process more directly and to provide a fresh and up-to-date perspective. The approach remains non-theoretical with the emphasis on practical explanations and exercises. This Fourth Edition contains readings for those profs who wish to use these as a catalyst for writing. These readings are integrated at the end of each chapter in The Canadian Practical Stylist with Readings.
