Overview

The Little DK Handbook’s design is a true marriage of visual and textual content, in which each topic is presented in self-contained, two-page spreads for at-a-glance referencing. Explanations are concise and “chunked” to be more approachable and appealing for today’s readers, and accompanying visuals truly teach – making concepts and processes visible to students. The ground-breaking layout creates a consistent look and feel that helps students connect with the material, find information, and recognize solutions to writing problems they often don’t have names for.

Little DK offers more instruction on research—particularly online research—than other brief handbooks. This handbook also presents grammar and documentation (MLA, APA, CMS and CSE) in new ways that makes the material more accessible, including unique “pattern pages” that help students grasp principles visually.

With strong attention to the rhetorical situation, visual examples illustrating all stages of the writing process, and student-tested grammar, research, and documentation coverage, The Little DK Handbook offers more than other brief handbooks, presents information in a revolutionary format, and motivates students to become better writers and researchers.
