THE WRITER'S RESPONSE teaches students not only the basics of paragraph and essay writing--unity, coherence, and support--but also the basics of academic writing, making it a complete source for students preparing for higher-level work. Through a variety of exercises and extensive readings, the text teaches students to read carefully and summarize accurately, to recognize and respond to specific points in the material they have read, to synthesize ideas from several reading selections, and to evaluate and argue about the ideas they have found in their reading material. Although the authors' focus is on writing about reading, they also encourage students to use their personal experiences to develop and support their ideas. This combination results in a text that not only imparts the fundamentals of college-level writing, but also helps each student find his or her own voice--and discover that they do, indeed, have something to say.

"I love Part 1. The strengths of this section are that we begin at a basic level of comprehending what we write and read, and then identifying what is most important in that. I find the blue-shaded "student writing" helpful. I make sure my students read those, and watch the paragraphs develop into organized, detailed and unified essays."
"I really like the way the readings are integrated into the text! I have always held firm that reading and writing go hand-in-hand."
