Everyone writes better when writing on something of interest, yet students in a developmental writing class too often feel the course is completely separate from their own lives and goals. Drawing on more than 30 combined years of classroom experience, Kate Mangelsdorf and Evelyn Posey, authors of Discoveries, for the paragraph to essay course, give students concrete strategies for uncovering ideas that matter to them -- and then provide step-by-step guidance for turning these ideas into solid college essays and other writing projects. With a tone that is clear yet supportive, Choices gives students detailed help with the skills needed for successful writing in college, from understanding writing as a process to taking essay exams, from using rhetorical strategies to conducting research. As ESL and developmental reading specialists, the authors are able to provide in-depth help in these crucial areas. Choices not only gives developing students the patient, detailed support they need but also helps them grow as thinkers and writers.
