Brannan/Finlay A Writer's Workshop - Crafting Sentences, Building Paragraphs, Designing Essays, Canadian Edition, engages emerging writers with a hands-on, 4-colour guide to the writing process. Through clear explanations and engaging application-based writing activities, Brannan/Finlay demonstrates the value of effective writing in one's academic and professional career. The Alternate Assignments at the end of every essay chapter asks students to apply what they've just learned to real world cases. Since this comprehensive text follows a sentence-to-paragraph-to-essay model, students will not only learn basic grammar, but also how to incorporate those lessons into larger pieces of writing. The inclusion of student writing samples and peer-review prompts will also help students engage in the material and think critically.
