Change Students'' Attitudes about Writing

Pretexts for Writing demonstrates what happens before we begin to write and what the teacher and student bring to the task through past teachings and experience.

An unorthodox approach to writing, Pretexts for Writing, addresses some of the preconceptions held by teachers and students formed from previous lessons. Creating dialogues and raising questions will encourage new ideas to formulate about the writing process.

Chapter topics include:

- Writing Processes
- Pretexts on Organization
- Writing Arguments in Community
- Evaluation and Opinion Essays
- Writing from Personal Experience
- Inquiry, Invention, and Research
- Style and Content
- Diversity Research Issues

Each chapter begins with common "pretexts" or assumptions and suggests better ways to think about, and practice writing. To facilitate this approach, a blog starts each chapter and between chapters, grammar interludes provide understanding of the most commonly used punctuation patterns.

Throughout the book, chapter overviews, chapter summaries, discussion questions, writing assignments, group activities, readings and questions for reflection are incorporated to enable students to develop their writing skills.
