In Writers at Work: The Essay, college and university students use the process approach to write different genres of essays common at the post-secondary level—the most important being expository writing, persuasive writing, and timed essay exams. Each chapter uses the same five-step approach to writing that is used in the two lower-level books. In each chapter, students analyze a model essay, noticing key organizational and linguistic features; brainstorm ideas; write multiple drafts; revise their work; engage in peer reviews; and share their finished work. Chapters recycle and build upon previously taught material.
Writers at Work: The Essay Teacher's Manual provides an introduction to the course, teaching tips for each activity, and answers to exercises in the Student's Book.
