Additional Product Information:
College students taking the first-year composition course often wonder how it will benefit them. From the beginning, Write Now has been designed to respond to that question by demonstrating that being able to write effectively is essential for achieving success, and that writing can be a worthwhile and satisfying experience. Write Now builds greater student confidence as learners approach writing for college, for their careers, or for their everyday lives, while guiding them through the process of exploring ideas, drafting, revising, and editing their work. The Rhetorical Star, used throughout the text, keeps students focused on their writing situation as they draft, revise, edit and design their work. Write Now provides students with plenty of practical, hands-on advice for dealing with any writing situation they might encounter, whether they are writing as students or as professionals.
