9780070622708: Writing Incisively: Do-it-Yourself Prose Surgery (Disk)

With a sole focus on revision and editing, this book gives students practice and advice for becoming adept readers/editors of their writing. The text demonstrates the benefits of sentence-combining as a revision skill, allowing instructors to address the balance of the writing process using whatever approach they wish. Special features of this book include sections on "Prose Surgery in Action" which end each chapter with a "before and after" look at student papers, models for analysis, discussions of students' own work, as well as "Personal Applications" exercises in each chapter which give students the opportunity to apply what they learn.
