The Little, Brown Handbook,Global Edition,13th Edition
For courses in English Composition.
This version of The Little, Brown Handbook has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)*
The gold standard of handbooks–unmatched in accuracy, currency, and reliability
The Little, Brown Handbook is an essential reference tool designed to help readers find the answers they need quickly and easily. While keeping pace with rapid changes in writing and its teaching, it offers the most comprehensive research and documentation available–with grammar coverage that is second to none.
With detailed discussions of critical reading, media literacy, academic writing, and argument, as well as writing as a process, writing in the disciplines, and writing beyond the classroom, the 13th Edition of this handbook addresses writers of varying experience and in varying fields.
* The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.
Using experience-driven advice and compelling articles from scores of newspaper, magazine and online writers, Feature Writing shows how award-winning journalists achieve excellence and national recognition. The Seventh Edition helps the reader cultivate vital journalistic skills through detailed coverage on creating and refining article ideas, conducting research and interviews, writing, and navigating legal and ethical questions. World-class writing examples from Pulitzer Prize feature writers, extensive updates, and timely tips from some of America’s best feature writers have made this the premier book in its field for more than three decades.
Now with engaging National Geographic images, the new edition of the Great Writing series helps students write better sentences, paragraphs, and essays. The new Foundations level meets the needs of low-level learners through practice in basic grammar, vocabulary, and spelling, while all levels feature clear explanations, student writing models, and meaningful practice opportunities. The new edition of the Great Writing series is the perfect writing solution for all learners from beginning to advanced.
Engaging Questions takes a practical approach to composing, with a view that good writing occurs in the context of critical thinking. By using a consistent methodology that prompts students to learn and practice “the art of questioning,” Engaging Questions presents writing as one essential part of the critical thinking whole, ultimately empowering students to become skilled thinkers and confident writers. In combination with CONNECT Composition, integrated and paired with Blackboard, the program offers a powerful and unique print and digital solution for those looking for a new, more current rhetoric.
