College Writing: A Personal Approach to Academic Writing


A Personal Approach to Academic Writing, Vol. 3 - Toby Fulwiler - Paperback - 3RD (2002)
The affirmation of individual creativity in writing is what sets this book apart from other process-oriented rhetorics. Conversational in tone, the book's third edition boasts a writer-to-writer perspective that will put students at ease. The book "walks" students through the main elements of writing from discovery and research to revising and editing. At the same time, it allows for many detours in its step-by-step approach, with frequent reminders that everyone's processes are unique and that establishing and maintaining a personal voice can be achieved while meeting conventional academic expectations. The book examines the different, yet overlapping stages of writing. It addresses rhetorical issues of audience, purpose, and voice, as well as the details of field, library, and Internet research, with particular attention to evaluating sources. It also offers these new features to keep students and teachers up to date: new Web-based research information; the most recent Modern Language Association guidelines; increased coverage of visual elements of texts; more on approaches to writing "alternative" pieces; and a look at the role of creative nonfiction in an academic setting. The book includes examples of the best of undergraduate writing for inspiration, student statements about their writing problems for reassurance, and guidelines for writing groups, portfolios, publishing class books and Web pages, writing essay examinations, and punctuation.
