Description
Achieving excellence in any activity requires practice: Basketball players must practice their free throws, concert violinists must rehearse their scores, and writers of all levels must exercise their critical reading and writing skills. There is, of course, a major distinction between these examples; while basketball and orchestra practice are reserved for those who choose such activities, writing skills are required for successful human interaction in all areas of life -- from academic to professional, to personal. This book delivers the promise of its title, providing all readers with clear, succinct tips on how to write well. The friendly, conversational tone of this book, combined with its uncomplicated organization, make it accessible and enjoyable for all readers. Here's How to Write Well is organized into three parts. Part I provides a guided tour of the writing process, including strategies for composing in six rhetorical modes, advice for crafting sentences and paragraphs, and revising and editing checklists. Part II constitutes a concise but complete guide for writing a research paper, with instruction for MLA and APA documentation of sources, including electronic sources. Part III is a handbook explaining the causes of typical errors and practical ways to correct them. Coverage of critical reading and logical thinking encourages readers to develop open and inquiring minds. Instructors of critical reading and writing, and anyone interested in improving their writing skills.
