Description

The Writer’s World series was written to address the diverse needs of today’s students: students whose first language is not English, students who respond favorably to visuals, and students who have varying skill levels. Understanding that learning to write is not a “one for all” formula, authors Lynne Gaetz and Suneeti Phadke wrote The Writer’s World to help instructors reach as many students as possible by meeting their needs and addressing their individual interests and abilities. The authors’ innovative instruction seamlessly infuses material(s) for native and nonnative speakers, and their exercises and activities encourage active participation in the learning. The inviting design of The Writer’s World grabs students’ attention and illustrates concepts.
