The Writer's Art: A Practical Rhetoric and Handbook.
White, Fred D.
Designed to reveal the art and craft of composition and the principles that underlie good writing, this textbook focuses on how to improve students' writing and how to give students a sense of the contribution writing makes to any kind of learning. The 20 chapters of the textbook are divided into 5 parts: (1) "The Writing Experience"; (2) "Principles and Projects"; (3) "Tools of the Trade"; (4) Special Topics"; and (5) a handbook of concise information of grammatical and rhetorical principles, usage problems, punctuation, spelling, and manuscript formatting, proofreading, and notetaking marks. Throughout the textbook, writing projects are presented separately from the rhetorical principles usually associated with those projects. (RS)
