The guide offers engaging instruction in rhetoric and composition, a flexible sequence of comprehensive writing assignments, numerous examples of student and professional writing, and thorough guides to research and editing. Solidly grounded in current theory and research, yet eminently practical and teachable, The Allyn and Bacon Guide to Writing has set the new standard for freshman composition courses in writing, reading, and critical thinking and inquiry. Part One, A Rhetoric for College Writer, provides a conceptual framework by showing how inquiring writers pose problems, pursue them through discussion and exploratory writing, and solve them as they compose and revise. Part Two, Writing Projects, contains twelve self-contained assignment chapters arranged according to the purposes for writing. Each chapter guides the reader through the process of generating and exploring ideas, composing and drafting, revising and editing. Part Three, A Guide to Composing and Revising, comprises five self-contained chapters of nuts-and-bolts strategies for composing and revising. A Guide to Research, Part Four, instructs how to conduct research and incorporate sources into their own writing, and includes a state-of-the-art chapter on electronic writing and research. Part Five, A Guide to Special Writing Occasions, gives helpful advice on writing reflective self-evaluations and on writing essay exams.
