Real Writing - With Readings - Paragraphs and Essays For College, Work, And Everyday Life

File Size: 11.74 mb

Since the fi rst edition of Real Writing, the basic goal of this book has been twofold: to show students how writing is essential to success in the real world, and then to help them develop the writing skills they need to succeed in their college, work, and everyday lives. Real Writing shares this goal with
the other Real books: Real Skills and Real Essays.
As always, our fi rst job as educators is to meet students where they are — to understand who they are and what they bring to the college writing class. Only then can we make a connection with them and guide them along the path to success. Because this book is grounded in the real world, the content of each edition must refl ect changes in that world and its requirements for success. Honestly, that is what I love about having the chance to revise every few years. What happens in classrooms, boardrooms, and living rooms is not static, and as an author I have the opportunity to incorporate what is needed to help students become successful college students and citizens. So, in this fifth edition, Real Writing has the same basic goals and some of the same core content that has worked for so many instructors and students. It also refl ects important new research into what helps students connect to college life and their communities, and thereby succeed academically and identify and achieve their own goals.
