How Writing Works: A Guide to Composing Genres with Readings

Jordynn Jack & Katie Rose Guest Pryal

Teach students the transferable skills they'll need for writing situations in school, college, and career

While most textbooks teach students how to write, this book teaches students how writing works with a problem-solving approach. Students learn how a new genre works by sasking three questions—"What Is It?," "Who Reads It?," and "What's It For?"

Features

  • The Genre Toolkit helps students identify a genre's structure, audience, and purpose—a flexible set of strategies that students can apply to any writing situation.
  • Integrated assignments show students how to construct a series of small assignments that lead up to a major writing project.
  • Individual, group, and multimedia projects provide composition practice in a range of situations students may encounter in college and career.
  • Mini-Genres with stunning visuals and relevant examples help students relate the genres to their everyday lives.
  • Project chapters focus on genre families—such as analyses, reports, or reviews—and show students how the individual genres share a fundamental purpose even as they may differ in content, form, and audience.
  • Projects include traditional academic genres as well as genres drawn from different professional situations.
  • Student and professional examples make the connections between college writing and workplace writing even clearer.
  • FREE Student Companion Website provides chapter worksheets, genre checklists, peer review sheets, an online glossary, and additional online resources.
  • FREE Ancillary Resource Center offers the teacher an extensive digital Instructor's Manual including discussion questions, in-class and take-home writing activities, multimedia suggestions, and rubrics.
