Described as one of the bestselling writing manuals in the last 25 years, The St. Martin's Guide to Writing Short Edition is a practical tool for both students and instructors taking up or handling composition courses. It is a reliable material that offers comprehensive guides for various writing genres, allowing students to develop their own strategies while also offering them advice on how to get ideas rolling. Authors Rise Axelrod and Charles Cooper also included discussions on how to work with sources, how to make revisions, as well as doing critical reading. This class-tested reference appeals to instructors as much as it does to learners. The book is not just a step-by-step guide to the different writing processes – it also offers a selection of readings that students can use as reference for developing their own style of writing. The St. Martin's Guide to Writing Short Edition (ISBN 9780312536138) by Rise B. Axelrod and Charles R. Cooper discusses the writing process through different styles of writing, from telling a story or remembering an event to writing profiles, explaining a concept, finding common ground, arguing a position, or proposing a solution. Other chapters talk about writing to evaluate, speculate, and analyze. The book also talks about the different strategies involved in writing, from invention strategies like mapping, listing, cubing, outlining, questioning, and quick drafting, to reading strategies like paraphrasing, annotating, summarizing, contextualizing, and evaluating. This guide talks about the use of thesis, orienting, and forecasting statements, paragraphing, transitions, and logical relationships to cue readers. Narrating, describing, defining, and classifying are also explained, as well as comparing and contrasting and arguing. Document design is discussed, along with how to analyze visuals, and how to do field, library, and internet research.
