Its relaxed and conversational tone immediately sets up a collaborative dialogue between the book and the reader; innovative “ workshop/conference- style” samples show writers essays-in-progress and the possibilities of revision and rewriting; and a mix of traditional and innovative writing projects provide readers the freedom to write about things within their own interest range. Throughout, readers are given product-centered goals to reach (an issue paper, a proposal, etc.), but are asked to work on their writing in a very process-centered way (pre-writing, writing, post-writing, etc.) Focuses on seven types of essay -- covering each individually, in depth, in its own chapter -- and featuring a mix of traditional and innovative writing projects -- The Personal Essay (narrative), The Observation Essay, The Evaluation Essay, The Problem/Solution Essay (“ call to action” ), The Research Essay (including an innovative “ series of steps” approach to the often daunting research process), The Issue Paper -- (a creative style of argument paper or Rogerian essay) The Creed Essay -- (that encourages writers to examine their moral decision making process).
