Writing Processes and Structures teaches effective paragraph writing skills by introducing students to the rhetorical modes of description, narration, process, comparison and contrast, and persuasion. Models work with ESL and Generation 1.5 students. The multitude of activities and assignments cultivate vocabulary development and grammar skills.
The first chapter introduces students to the basic skills necessary for successful academic writing by reviewing Microsoft Word, grammar, vocabulary, sentence types and their punctuation, journal-writing, and the peer review process.
Each chapter of Writing Processes and Structures includes an introduction to the type of paragraph mode and a reading in the appropriate style.
Student models are provided in an appendix.
