How to Write for Class: A Student's Guide to Grammar, Punctuation, and Style is a comprehensive guide to the concepts students need to know to write effectively for school. Rather than treat grammar as a series of rules to be memorized, it emphasizes the logic behind the English language as well as the relationship between grammar and meaning.
The approach taken in this book is also based on the observation that students often find it challenging to apply rules studied in isolation, or through overly-simplified examples, to the more complex statements they want to include in their own writing. How to Write for Class is designed to help bridge that gap: it makes use of numerous examples from actual papers and walks students through the process of constructing the type of sophisticated but grammatically coherent statements that will raise their academic writing to the next level.
Appropriate for advanced middle-school through college writers.
