Writer's Mindset https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260526348.jpeg 1 9781260526349 To become good writers, students must learn more than a writing process: they must develop a writer’s mindset—the rhetorical skills to read critically, analyze and synthesize sources, and write with their audiences in mind. How can we help students with the challenges involved in thinking like a writer? By using incremental steps that move from literal thinking to analytical and critical understanding, The Writer’s Mindset 1e makes the development of college-level writing capabilities possible for all students, whatever their level of preparedness. The Writer’s Mindset provides students with tools to transform the way they approach reading, writing, and arguing through five key pillars: • Rhetorical Focus • Incremental Approach • Embedded Support • Student Appeal • Instructor Support The breadth of coverage allows the text to be used in both semesters of Composition, including Composition sections tied to a Co-Requisite or ALP course, which makes this an excellent choice for 2-year schools. It also includes MLA 9e updates. Target opportunities using Everyone’s an Author, Everything’s an Argument, or Writing in the Works.
