Additional Product Information:
With The McGraw Hill Guide, students apply a goals-oriented, purpose-based approach to their writing assignments and practice the habits of mind of engaged students. Using proven techniques derived from the Frameworks for Success in Postsecondary Writing, The Guide encourages students to understand the underlying principles on which their writing is assessed by offering reflective opportunities for students to assess themselves. In doing so, students will develop the strategies needed to transfer these skills throughout their coursework and long after they have completed college. Structured to help students set, achieve, and assess their writing goals, The Guide encourages students to transfer the knowledge they develop to assignments across the disciplines, and apply it to their personal, civic, and professional lives. This title is a great fit for Composition 1 (and 2) at 4year schools or schools using The St. Martin’s Guide to Writing or The Composition of Everyday Life, or The Prentice Hall Guide for College Writing. It also includes MLA 9e updates.
