Book Title: Good Ideas About Writing
Book Description: This textbook, created by college students for college students, provides advice and guidance for writing successfully, both in school and in life. Sections dedicated to writing, writers, style, assessment, and teaching cover a range of timely topics and helpful strategies for re-thinking your relationship to writing and your identity as a writer.
Gathering advice on over 100 perspectives on writing, this collection guides college students as they explore writing as a discipline of study. Each chapter is written by college students for college students, helping connect authors and readers through shared experiences and approaches.
Good Ideas About Writing came about in response to Bad Ideas About Writing, a collection edited by Cheryl E. Ball and Drew M. Loewe. Their collection, authored by experts in the discipline, addresses commonly held public misconceptions about writing and the teaching of writing. By contrast, Good Ideas About Writing works to build helpful perceptions of writing before those common misconceptions have a chance to take root.
Emphasizing clarity and shared experience, Good Ideas About Writing strengthens students’ understanding of how writing works, both in school and in life after graduation. The ideas in this book will help you approach both writing and learning with confidence and clarity.
