Overview

NEW—Introduction of a Compact Edition—A scaled-down version of the Complete Edition.

~ Some teachers felt that the 22-chapter Complete Edition is excellent but a bit too comprehensive for their needs; consequently Prentice Hall now publishes an 11-chapter Compact Edition, thereby providing another ideal supplement for any freshman English course.

NEW—Added "Rhetoric, "Business and Law," "Natural Science."
 
NEW—Changes in tests and quizzes. 

NEW—A composite Instructor's Manual (with study suggestions, tests, and keys)—Provided for use with either the Complete or the Compact editions. 

Programmed, self-instruction format—Students learn step by step and by repetition—at their own speed, as though they have a tutor at their elbow confirming their answers. Definitions, examples, and sentence completions appear on the right side of the page; and correct answers appear on the left, in the margin.

~ Allows students to work independently and confidently at their own pace and to quickly confirm the accuracy of their responses—without the usual windmill of page-turning. Frees up class time for instructors.

Exercises that require repeated recall—Up to six times, of each defined word.

~ Provides opportunities for cumulative and continual reinforcement of material learned previously.

Emphasis on college vocabulary—Rather than random big words. Focuses on terms from science, literature, history, and arts.

~ Helps prepare students for actual coursework.

The use of precise descriptive words and active verbs.

~ Encourages students to eliminate wordiness and clichés.

Basic literary terms and terminology found in more advanced English courses—e.g., hyperbole, irony, protagonist, naturalism, sonnet, etc.).

~ Prepares students for future college courses.
