Writing in the Works

Author: Susan Blau
Publisher: Cengage Learning
ISBN: 9780547151519
Release Date: 2008-12-18
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

WRITING IN THE WORKS (WITW) uses a real-world writing approach to intrigue and inspire students, showing them how to produce good writing (written work that people in the world at large would want to read) in a range of genres. The heart of the book is its 11 Assignment chapters, each covering a different real-world genre such as application essay, news article, editorial, proposal, public service message, and film review. WITW engages students and motivates them with its sophisticated visuals, timely readings, and obvious relevance and connection to the world beyond the university. Throughout, the authors treat students as serious writers, capable of writing for an actual audience beyond that of a composition instructor. Students write as if they will submit what they write for publication--or actually to submit what they write for publication. This real-world writing approach raises the stakes for students. They take the tasks more seriously when the assignments do not seem contrived and artificial and when this possibility of publication is in play. In fulfilling the real-world task, they learn genre conventions, audience, purpose, research, critical thinking, and style--skills directly transferable to the students' college writing and to the writing they will do for work and community.
