View: 9369

Best-selling authors and veteran college writing instructors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell believe that students learn to write best when they use their own writing as a starting point. In Writing First with Readings: Practice in Context, designed for the paragraph to essay course, Kirszner and Mandell take seriously the ideas and expressive abilities of developmental students, as well as their need to learn the rules of writing and grammar. Visual writing prompts that open every chapter get students writing immediately. By moving frequently between their own writing, writing models and instruction, and workbook-style mastery exercises, students get constant reinforcement of the skills they are learning. Thoughtful chapters on college success, research, and critical reading, along with high-interest essays, round out the text, making it the perfect introduction to college writing. Read the preface.

The Crisis of the Twelfth Century

Power, Lordship, and the Origins of European Government

Author: Thomas N. Bisson

Publisher: Princeton University Press

ISBN: 1400874319

Category: History

Page: 720

View: 351

Medieval civilization came of age in thunderous events like the Norman Conquest and the First Crusade. Power fell into the hands of men who imposed coercive new lordships in quest of nobility. Rethinking a familiar history, Thomas Bisson explores the circumstances that impelled knights, emperors, nobles, and churchmen to infuse lordship with social purpose. Bisson traces the origins of European government to a crisis of lordship and its resolution. King John of England was only the latest and most conspicuous in a gallery of bad lords who dominated the populace instead of ruling it. Yet, it was not so much the oppressed people as their tormentors who were in crisis. The Crisis of the Twelfth Century suggests what these violent people—and the outcries they provoked—contributed to the making of governments in kingdoms, principalities, and towns.

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. 0321964128 / 9780321964120 Write Stuff, The: Thinking Through Essays Plus NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0205870147 / 9780205870141 NEW MyWritingLab with Pearson eText -- Valuepack Access Card 0321899881 / 9780321899880 The Write Stuff: Thinking Through Essays
