About

Overview

More detailed than a pocket handbook yet briefer than a concise handbook, HARBRACE ESSENTIALS WITH RESOURCES FOR MULTILINGUAL WRITERS provides all the authority of the Harbrace tradition in an ideal new length and portable format. Clear and concise explanations outline the essentials students need to write their papers, including instruction on the rhetorical contexts that affect their choice of grammatical constructions, style, punctuation, and mechanics, as well as strategies for writing paragraphs and essays, conducting research, and documenting sources. Additional resources for multilingual writers are included.

Features and Benefits

  • Part 9 with 3 chapters devoted to grammatical concepts provides additional support for multilingual writers.
  • An extensive list of MLA citations--85 in all--gives students ample guidance and support as they write their papers.
  • Each clear, precise explanation of a key grammar, usage, style, or punctuation topic also includes an illustrative example designed to demystify the concept in real-world writing situations.
  • The authors thoroughly address areas of common student concern from how to conduct research to evaluating and integrating source materials without plagiarizing.
  • Several student papers on interesting and timely topics provide useful, realistic examples of how to approach assignments students are likely to encounter in many of their classes.
  • A chapter on argumentation with an annotated student paper follows a classical arrangement.
  • A glossary of usage includes commonly confused or misused words.
