TECHNIQUES FOR COLLEGE WRITING: THE THESIS STATEMENT AND BEYOND is a brief rhetoric that empowers students as writers by giving them the tools they need to create a precise and well-focused thesis. Using the thesis statement as the lens through which students can approach the entire thinking and writing process, TECHNIQUES is divided into three parts that build upon one another: Part I--Thinking Through the Thesis Statement, Part II--Thinking Through Your Writing Assignment, and Part III--Writing Beyond the Composition Classroom. A wide range of journal articles, book excerpts, student essays, paintings, magazine ads, poetry, and short stories make the text accessible to students, and Thinking Through a Reading questions promote active reading and in-class discussion. In-chapter practice exercises, writing applications, revision tools, and writing assignments help students gain confidence so that they can begin to incorporate the techniques they've learned in the book into their own personal writing styles Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.

Composition research consistently demonstrates that the social context of writing determines the majority of conventions any writer must observe. Still, most universities organize the required first-year composition course as if there were an intuitive set of general writing "skills" usable across academic and work-world settings. In College Writing and Beyond: A New Framework for University Writing Instruction, Anne Beaufort reports on a longitudinal study comparing one student’s experience in FYC, in history, in engineering, and in his post-college writing. Her data illuminate the struggle of college students to transfer what they learn about "general writing" from one context to another. Her findings suggest ultimately not that we must abolish FYC, but that we must go beyond even genre theory in reconceiving it. Accordingly, Beaufort would argue that the FYC course should abandon its hope to teach a sort of general academic discourse, and instead should systematically teach strategies of responding to contextual elements that impinge on the writing situation. Her data urge attention to issues of learning transfer, and to developmentally sound linkages in writing instruction within and across disciplines. Beaufort advocates special attention to discourse community theory, for its power to help students perceive and understand the context of writing.

Now he brings his proven methodology and friendly tone to Joining the Conversation. While students may know how to send text messages, search for images, and read the news online all at the same time, they don’t necessarily know how to juggle the skills they need to engage readers and compose a meaningful contribution to an academic conversation. Meeting students where they are — working online and collaboratively — Joining the Conversation embraces the new realities of writing, without sacrificing the support that students need as they write for college and beyond.
