Write Stuff with Student Access Code : Thinking Through Essays
The Write Stuff: Thinking through Essays equips developing writers with the critical thinking skills they need to interpret and analyze information and express their ideas clearly and logically in writing.
As early as Chapter 1, author Marcie Sims defines critical thinking and goes on to explain the meaning and function of specific critical thinking terms and tools throughout the book. This element of critical thinking was something that Sims found missing in developmental writing texts currently available. Reaching beyond the usual writing instruction found in other texts, Sims gets to the core of developing the writer, which is to develop the writer as a thinker-writer. This approach to writing provides students with the basic tools for writing well-organized and developed essays that are grammatically and mechanically correct.
