Learn the basics of paragraph and essay writing--as well as the basics of successful academic writing-with THE WRITER’S RESPONSE. In each chapter, you ‘ll discover a variety of exercises and readings designed to help you learn to read carefully and summarize accurately, to recognize and respond to specific points in the material you’ve read, to synthesize ideas from several reading selections, and to evaluate and argue about the ideas in each reading. As you develop the skills to write about reading more effectively, you’ll also learn how to use your own experiences to develop and support your ideas to create more powerful and convincing essays. This combination of academic know-how and personal experience results in a text that will not only teach the fundamentals of college-level writing, but will also help you discover your own voice. And discover that you do, indeed, have something to say.
