Files

Description

The book establishes a foundation of general semantic principles and offers a series of assignments encouraging students to discover the benefits that operational prose can bring to their thinking and writing. Early assignments ask students to describe, summarize, and report; later assignments ask students to analyze and refute others' arguments. At the end of each assignment-sequence, students offer their own arguments about moral and practical questions. Students also receive training in integrating source material with their own arguments. The graduated series of assignments makes the text suitable for writing classes at all levels. (Amazon.com)
