Writing for All
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. They also explore writing to inform, analyze, and argue or persuade. Unit three addresses editing. It focuses 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 distinct chapter features learning objectives, checklists to support self-correction, and review activities. Writing for All makes the writing process manageable by teaching students the specific skills they need to write successfully and providing opportunities for them to combine and implement these skills through approachable assignments. The book is ideal for developmental and pre-college level writing classes.
