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.
