Focus on Writing: Paragraphs and Essays, new from best-selling authors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell, is their most accessible writing text yet. Focus on Writing engages students visually, demonstrates concepts with color and highlighting, and offers students more grammar support than any comparable text on the market. This text provides the same excellent coverage that Kirszner and Mandell's popular workbook series, Foundations First: Sentences and Paragraphs and Writing First: Practice in Context are known for, while also responding to students' changing needs and realities. It offers more step-by-step coverage of the writing process and more diverse examples, exercises, and models, making it both student-friendly and thorough. Working clearly and simply to engage and motivate students, Focus on Writing empowers students to become capable writers and self-editors who are prepared for college composition.
