Writing Process Exercises
The Process section allows you to work in depth with each step of the writing process. You may choose to work on one specific step in the writing process, such as drafting, or you may choose to work through a series of "guided" exercises that walk you from one step of the writing process to the next, allowing you to bring a writing project to completion.
The Activities section provides you with 80 different writing exercises in which you respond to videos, images, Web sites, or textual prompts. These exercises parallel the kinds of writing and critical thinking you'll do in college. Practice your academic writing skills, discover ideas for class essays, or sharpen your awareness of the world and your ability to reflect on your own experiences.
