Overview

Wordsmith: A Guide to Paragraphs and Short Essays, Books a la Carte Edition by Pamela Arlov

NOTE: This edition features the same content as the traditional text in a convenient, three-hole-punched, loose-leaf version. Books a la Carte also offer a great value; this format costs significantly less than a new textbook. Before purchasing, check with your instructor or review your course syllabus to ensure that you select the correct ISBN. Several versions of Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products exist for each title, including customized versions for individual schools, and registrations are not transferable. In addition, you may need a CourseID, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson's MyLab & Mastering products.

NOTE: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyWritingLab™ does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MyWritingLab, search for:

Helping students to craft direct, clear, and engaging writing
Briefer and more readable than full-length texts, Wordsmith: A Guide to Paragraphs and Short Essays, Sixth Edition is the antidote to dry, overwrought, and overly expansive writing guides. Wordsmith engages students, serves multiple skill levels, and teaches enduring writing techniques in a way that’s actionable, contemporary, hands-on, and fun.

Wordsmith: A Guide to Paragraphs and Short Essays, Sixth Edition is a powerful tool for students and teachers alike. With appealing, topical readings and expanded writing exercises, the updated text empowers instructors to meet students where they are and engage their collective interests. A three-part layout allows the freedom to mix and match the writing chapters, grammar chapters, and readings. Pam Arlov’s structured yet flexible approach to writing encourages clarity and creativity. Her direct, conversational, student-friendly approach is used throughout, with light-hearted chapter openings that promote a positive and playful approach to learning.

Also Available with MyWritingLab™
This title is also available with MyWritingLab —an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts. In addition to the full eText activities directly from the text are available within MyWritingLab. These include the small scrawl written assignments, readings from the text, review exercises and more.
