About

Overview

The STUDENT COURSE GUIDE FOR THE WRITER'S ODYSSEY, Third Edition, is for exclusive use with the Dallas TeleLearning course, The Writer's Odyssey. An integral component to the course, the Student Course Guide acts as a bridge between the two other resources that make up the course: The Writer's Odyssey video series and the INVENTING ARGUMENTS 3E text. Each chapter in the guide outlines the lesson goals and objectives, assignments from the text (including an argument handbook and a research guide) and enrichment activities that assist students as they write.

Features and Benefits

  • The Third Edition of STUDENT COURSE GUIDE FOR THE WRITER'S ODYSSEY has been revised to reflect content changes in INVENTING ARGUMENTS 3E.
