Known for its clarity and coverage, Correct Writing is a versatile and comprehensive aid in teaching grammar, punctuation, mechanics, and diction. The Fifth Edition format combines a thorough workbook of exercises with a convenient reference handbook, providing a flexible teaching tool for use in a variety of developmental writing courses.
New exercises and tests reinforce sentence-level concepts students need to know before proceeding to composition or rhetoric.
A new section on sentence-combining gives students practice in manipulating sentences and improving style.
Paragraph-length exercises allow students to correct grammatical errors and punctuation mistakes in the context of a longer piece of writing, as they would on their own work.
Discussion of troublesome sentence elements now includes exhaustive lists of pronouns and their cases as well as a clear explanation of verb tense, voice, and mood.
