About

Overview

Strengths of KEYS FOR WRITERS include concise but complete explanations, ease of use (with ten color-coded tabs that clearly signal the book's content), strong ESL coverage, and outstanding student writing samples. New co-author Susan Miller-Cochran brings to this edition a framework for critical thinking that offers students a method for understanding and approaching rhetorical situations. Additionally, new exercises at the end of most parts let students check their understanding. In the documentation sections, "Source Shots" provide visual examples of how to document sources from print to Internet sources and from encyclopedia articles to MP3 selections. A new focus on writing in the disciplines helps students carry the framework for critical thinking into a variety of academic contexts, while new guidelines for thinking critically about sources helps students apply the framework to source evaluation. A new design provides stronger visual presentation of concepts to help students learn to think critically about their writing and use of sources.

Features and Benefits

  • "KEY POINTS" BOXES offer quick-reference summaries of essential information that students can use in reviewing and studying important concepts.
  • "TECH NOTES" provide specific guidance for integrating technology into writing and research; for example, in Chapter 1, a Tech Notes box explains how to use social bookmarking to annotate texts online.
  • "SOURCE SHOTS" show students, in a graphic form, how to find citation information on book or periodical title pages, web sites, and more.
  • STUDENT WRITING SAMPLES include developing a thesis; free-writing; brainstorming; writing and researching in the humanities, arts, and natural sciences; creating a bibliography; a new argument paper; a new paper that shows how a subject can be adapted to the demands of different disciplines (in Chapter 5, Writing in the Disciplines); a new student research paper in MLA style; a new student research paper in APA style; an excerpt from a student's research paper in CSE style; and a new excerpt from a student research paper in Chicago style. All sample student research papers and excerpts include visuals.
  • UNIQUE FIVE Cs OF STYLE in Part 6 gives students guidance for reviewing and revising their work, in what one reviewer called "a no-nonsense, easy-to-understand" way.
  • CRITICAL READING AND THINKING is incorporated throughout the text, and strengthened and emphasized in this edition to include thinking critically about Internet sources.
  • SUPERIOR COVERAGE FOR MULTILINGUAL WRITERS takes a "difference, not deficit" approach, including Language and Culture boxes, an extensive "Editing Guide to Multilingual Transfer Patterns," an "Editing Guide to Vernacular English," and "Notes for Multilingual Writers" integrated throughout the text.
  • THE INTUITIVE, COLOR-CODED, TWO-PART ORGANIZATION features laminated tabbed part dividers and a new, more colorful design that makes information accessible and easy to review.

What's New

  • Exercises have been added to the end of most sections (including the writing, sentence problems, grammar and mechanics issues, and ESL), allowing students to practice what they have learned. Answers to half of the exercises are found at the end of the text for self-study, while others can be assigned to check students' progress
  • Expanded coverage of critical thinking, beginning in Chapter 1 with "A Framework for Critical Thinking" includes consideration of purpose, audience, voice, and medium, presented in a visual format that recurs throughout the text to remind students of these vital considerations in their written work
  • Part 1, The Writing Process, has been thoroughly revised to reflect new technologies and their effect on student writing, as well as how critical thinking should be applied to every format, from evaluating visuals to assessing written work.
  • Part 2, Research/Sources/Documentation has been updated to stress the importance of evaluating and integrating sources, particularly sources found online. One reviewer called this revision "the most useful presentation of source integration and citation that I have encountered." At the same time, students are offered new tips from the perspective of an often untapped resource-their reference librarian.
  • Part 5, Design, Media, and Presentation, has been completely revised to reflect new social media, formats for document design, presentation formats, and workplace formats such as emails and electronic resumes.
  • NEW student papers provide contemporary paper topics with more examples of citation formats, in Chapters 4 (Writing and Analyzing Arguments), 13 (MLA sample paper), 16 (APA sample paper), and 20 (Chicago sample paper). A new student paper in Chapter 5, Writing in All Your Courses, provides an analysis of how a topic is treated in different disciplines.
  • Part 9, Writing Across Languages and Cultures, has been strengthened with added topics on diversity, as well as a discussion of the cultural requirement of documenting sources in the U.S. and updated "Notes for Multilingual Writers" throughout the text highlight areas that are troublesome for English Language Learners.
  • The seventh edition is accompanied by a full complement of digital resources that include Enhanced InSite (online paper grading, peer review, and originality checking), CourseMate (quizzing, tutorials), Questia (research), and Aplia (online homework, practice and review of grammar and writing fundamentals). Whether your course is on the ground, online, or somewhere in between, we have the digital resources sure to meet any instructional need.

Efficacy and Outcomes

Reviews

"Chapter 7 [Searching for Sources] is one of the best improvements that I have seen in years. It provides great explanatory breakdowns for the newer researcher. It also provides a wonderful list of the better databases, with clarification. If I did not know better, I would think that someone sat in my classroom and recorded all the points that are necessary to include in any research paper."

— Michael Underwood, San Diego State University

"I have used Keys for Writers for years as both a required and a recommended text. I find it extremely comprehensive yet easy to use. I also tell students that it is a text that they can keep for years as a reference text for future writing, both academic and professional-it's a great investment!"

— Ruth Salter, Boise State University

"I love the 'seven sins' approach to plagiarism. It goes far beyond what most textbooks include. There is also the section on cultural differences, something that we've had to deal with more as our international student population has grown. Kudos to the writers of this section. I've never seen such a well conceived and executed plan in other writing textbooks. The bulleted guidelines present the exact information that I like to share with students."

— Gayle Fornataro, Los Angeles Valley College
