In Our Own Words
High intermediate to Low advanced
In Our Own Words takes the unique approach of using student writing as a resource for writing instruction and idea development. It motivates students to take themselves seriously as writers and actively engage in writing as a communicative process. Carefully designed activities, suggestions, and assignments provide the structure that enables students to explore their own thoughts and find their own words. This is an ideal text for Generation 1.5 students. The third edition contains 15 new readings by student writers and 5 new readings by professional writers. It is revised and updated, yet retains the most popular readings and successful features of the previous editions.
