Overview

JUMPSTART! A Workbook for Writers is designed to build the confidence and competence students need to make the successful transition into college writing. While it primarily focuses on the most frequently occurring sentence-level grammar and structure issues, the text also teaches the whole writing process, including coverage of the paragraph and whole discourse. And because basic writers need to write rather than read about writing, JUMPSTART includes an abundance of exercises and activities.
