Additional Product Information:
College Writing Skills with Readings 10e highlights the importance of writing with a purpose by focusing on four bases of writing: unity, support, coherence, and sentence skills. The four bases provide students with clear guidance on how to organize their thoughts, structure their main idea into a thesis, provide supporting evidence to their claim, and revise and edit their work into a well complete, composed essay. College Writing Skills with Readings personalizes and grounds students’ writing experience by placing all of its reading, writing, and essay examples within three key realms - personal, academic, and workplace (PAW) - to emphasize the importance of writing in every facet of life.
