    Writing for All helps students build confidence through the use of a five-step writing process of prewriting, drafting, revising, editing, and presenting their final work. This developmental text covers only what is needed for guided lessons and activities. The short chapters feature targeted writing exercises that can be completed in class.

    The text begins by introducing the concepts of audience, purpose, and voice and discussing process writing. In the second unit, students learn about developing, organizing, and revising essays. Unit three addresses editing with focus on work at the sentence level and errors in mechanics, as well as word usage. The final unit prepares students to present essays through timed, research, and portfolio writing. Each chapter features learning objectives, checklists to support self-correction, and review activities.

    The second edition features new and revised content throughout, including a fresh approach to the second unit with content arranged by writing purpose.

    Writing for All teaches students the specific skills they need to write successfully and provides them with opportunities to implement these skills through approachable assignments. The book is ideal for developmental and pre-college level writing classes.
