The Short Composition
Ann O. Strauch
Writers at Work: The Short Composition is based on the popular Bridges to Academic Writing, which it now replaces. The book starts where Writers at Work: The Paragraph leaves off. It teaches low-intermediate to intermediate level students how to compose multi-paragraph short compositions. Students tap into their personal experience to organize their writing, using academic modes of organization, such as exemplification and cause and effect. In addition, students learn how to write about works of fiction and nonfiction by summarizing and citing sources.
Writers at Work: The Short Composition Teacher's Manual provides an introduction to the course, teaching tips for each activity, and answers to exercises in the Student's Book.
