The Wordsmith series is the value-priced option that students will appreciate while mastering key writing and grammar skills. Pam Arlov wrote a textbook series that counters many of the objections students had about textbooks, such as:Students find textbooks dry and tedious. Arlov includes thought-provoking chapter openers, plenty of visuals, and a conversational, engaging writing style that students really respond to. Students find textbooks irrelevant to their lives. Arlov's coverage of the rhetorical modes is realistic and models real-life writing. She includes "Real Writing" examples in the modes chapters to make Wordsmith relevant to students' lives.

For courses in developmental writing.

 

Inspire students to craft clear, concise, and engaging writing

Briefer and more accessible than full-length texts, Wordsmith: A Guide to Paragraphs and Short Essays is the antidote to dry, overwrought, and overly expansive writing guides. It engages students, serves multiple skill levels, and teaches enduring writing techniques in a way that’s actionable, contemporary, hands-on, and fun.

 

The 7th Edition is a powerful tool for students and teachers alike. With appealing, topical readings and expanded writing exercises, the updated text empowers instructors to meet students where they are and engage their collective interests. A three-part layout allows the freedom to mix and match the writing chapters, grammar chapters, and readings. Pam Arlov’s structured, yet flexible, approach to writing encourages clarity and creativity. Her direct, conversational, student-friendly tone is used throughout, with light-hearted chapter openers that promote a positive and playful way of learning.

 

The loose-leaf version of the text is also available with MyLab Writing

MyLab™ is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student. When students enter your developmental writing course with varying skill levels, MyLab can help you identify which students need extra support and provide them targeted practice and instruction outside of class.

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MyLab Writing does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with MyLab Writing, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
