This version of   Ticket to Write: Writing Paragraphs and Essays has been updated to reflect the 8th Edition of the MLA Handbook (April 2016)*


Turns students into college-level writers

Ticket to Write: Writing Paragraphs and Essays  is the premier introduction to college-level writing for students 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 extensive grammar and mechanics coverage as well as note-taking and study skills strategies,  Ticket to Write  sharpens the basic skills students must develop to write at a higher level.

* The 8th Edition introduces sweeping changes to the philosophy and details of MLA works cited entries. Responding to the “increasing mobility of texts,” MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. These changes, then, align with current best practices in the teaching of writing which privilege inquiry and critical thinking over rote recall and rule-following.
