Help your students make smart rhetorical choices

Written in Lisa Ede's accessible, supportive style, The Academic Writer is an affordable, brief guide to the essentials of academic writing and research. By framing writing situations in terms of the writer, reader, text, and medium, the text helps students think rhetorically and make effective choices as they write. Abundant student models, advice on writing in the disciplines, and attention to visuals and design make this text a perfect introduction to college writing -- at a great price.
“I am a flat out dedicated fan of Lisa Ede's generous approach, in large part due to her pitch perfect tone, which never fails to send my students the message that they, indeed, are writers.”
-- Jeanne Guerin, Sierra College
