Bestselling authors Kathleen McWhorter and Jane Aaron have joined forces to create a tabbed, spiral-bound handbook with exercises for first-year composition students that will give them the writing, reading, and study skills they need to succeed in college and in their writing courses.
The handbook opens with a practical, down-to-earth discussion of study skills, time management, reading strategies, and critical thinking — the essentials for good academic work and excellent papers. McWhorter and Aaron reach out to all students who may not already possess a strong foundation for doing college-level work to help them become successful members of the college community.
