Exploring Writing, 4th Edition, (PDF) focuses on writing skills and processes. By stating a set of four skills for effective writing, Exploring Writing: Paragraphs and Essays motivates new writers to see writing as a skill that can be learned and a process that must be studied. The four skills, or bases, for helpful writing are as follows:
Support: Support the points with particular evidence and plenty of it.
Sentence skills: Revise and revise so that sentences are error-free for clearer and more effective communication.
Unity: Discover a clearly defined point or topic sentence, and ensure that all other information in the paragraph or essay supports that point.
Coherence: Organize and connect supporting evidence so that essays and paragraphs transition smoothly from one bit of supporting information to the next.
The four bases are vital to effective writing, whether it is a cover letter for a job application, a narrative paragraph, or an essay assignment. Revised with 11 new readings (including works by Carol Dweck and Ta-Nehisi Coates), new content on literary analysis, and revised student examples, Exploring Writing: Paragraphs and Essays 4e involves college students in the writing process and facilitates their development as academic and professional writers.
