BOOK DESCRIPTION

Skills for College Writers focuses on how to effectively draft and revise expository essays and research papers/reports. It is a practicum with four distinct strengths, i.e., its stress on the ideal essay forms available, on detailed guidelines including worksheets and checklists, on students’ examples for exercise purposes, and on training students in critical thinking skills so that they may have strong ideas for the content of their essays.

The book is user-friendly, and student writers will find that any chapter they choose to study will enable them to successfully write the essay that specific chapter discusses. In addition, the essays chosen for critical reading are all theme-related, and the ideas from them can broaden students’ horizons and be instrumental in their settling on politically meaningful and socially significant topics.

 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

John Kezia, who received his PhD in English from the University of Illinois in 1995, has been teaching college writing for nearly two decades, having instructed in China, Taiwan, Canada, and America. He believes that in a college writing classroom the most important/practical matters students should learn to improve their writing are forms and ideas. Dr. Kezia is currently teaching composition and fiction writing at a state university close to the picturesque Lake Erie.
