Synopsis

This book is intended for strengthening academic writing skills through authentic literature. Lower-level students often miss out on the opportunity to read authentic literature. "Adventures in Composition" is designed to introduce these students to authentic literature by developing their academic and paragraph writing skills. These stories by well-known writers will hold the students' interest as they explore writing from a new perspective - learning to use the work of good writers as a guide. Each chapter features a Writing Basics section and pre-writing activities followed by three writing assignments. Students learn the features of each type of writing and have many opportunities to practice and develop their reading and writing skills. Peer evaluation and editing are strongly encouraged. "Adventures in Composition" includes the work of Guy de Maupassant, O. Henry, Shirley Jackson, Katherine Mansfield, W. Somerset Maugham, William Saroyan, and Oscar Wilde.
