A focus on writing process–Each chapter focusing on a major academic form guides students through the writing process for completing the major assignment.
A focus on rhetorical purpose- Shows students that for each piece of writing they compose, they must decide on a clear-cut purpose, assess their audience's needs, and determine how they will influence their readers.
Helpful models of other students’ work- Includes examples in various stages of revision, modeling process for students.
Peer review checklists- Guides students through evaluating peers’ papers for elements of rhetoric, style, structure and adherence to academic writing conventions, and allow them to internalize the qualities of good writing.
Reading comprehension questions–Accompany each reading and pre-reading activity and guide students to grasp the informational content, decide what form, organization, and expository features the author uses, and analyze rhetorical concerns–such as the context of the piece and the author's purpose with regard to his or her audience.
