1 Hairston, Maxine C. Successful Writing Second Edition
This book explains why writing is an important way of learning and gives students a clear idea of the qualities readers expect in good prose. While suggesting that writers may use significantly different processes in doing different kinds of writing, it analyzes and illustrates the steps most writers go through when they compose. Professor Hairston stresses the importance of students' thinking about audience and purpose every time they write. She also suggests effective ways to begin different kinds of papers and points out options for exploring, developing, and organizing ideas. A new feature of this text is the chapter on revising, and this is illustrated with a student paper taken through three drafts with comments on each version. Includes index, there is a bit of underlining and some comments, all in pencil. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
