Turns students into college-level writers

Ticket to Write: Writing Skills for Success is the premier introduction to college-level writing for freshmen who need further practice before entering composition courses. The text focuses on critical reading skills and guides students through the five steps of writing: prewriting, discovery drafting, revising, editing and proofreading, publishing. It then moves on to discover different types of writing found in the college classroom, such as critical essays and resource-based writing. Strong imagery engages visual learners throughout, and writing is related to relevant modern technologies. With grammar and mechanics coverage and note-taking strategies, Ticket to Write sharpens the basic skills students must develop to write at a higher level.
