Synopsis

Essentials of the Essay, Second Edition, teaches the writing of short essays through analytical reading, controlled writing, and model essays.



The text integrates writing, reading, and grammar throughout, reinforcing the fact that essay writing requires competence in all three areas. Chapters feature short essays by professional writers, instructional essays by the author, and paragraphs and essays of student-level writing - all of which serve as model essays for students. Short essays (between 200 and 700 words) by professional writers deal with thought-provoking topics and serve as an impetus to writing. Instructional essays deal with aspects of how to write (e.g., writing introductions, making transitions) and with grammar (e.g., words often confused, using apostrophes). Exercises for both essay writing and grammar generally consist of paragraphs and essays in which students must first learn to recognize a concept, then alter an example, and finally generate their own samples of the concept. By the end of the text, students will have had practice with over 100 essays from a variety of sources and styles.
