Writers at Work

Writers at Work

Writers at Work prepares ESL students to tackle academic essay writing by giving them a solid foundation in writing skills.

This series helps students learn how to find issues in the content and form of their writing, resulting in better writing and a greater appreciation of the value of the process. Each book takes students through the same five-step process: gathering ideas, composing, revising, editing, and sharing of the finished product. The lowest level in the series starts with sentence construction and ends by teaching the basics of paragraph writing. The second level in the series further develops students’ ability to write a single paragraph with a topic sentence and supporting sentences. The third level teaches multi-paragraph writing, in which several main ideas are supported over several paragraphs. The fourth book in the series introduces students to formal academic essay writing. Every Student's Book includes access to Writing Skills Interactive, an online course with instruction and practice across a range of discrete writing skills and an eBook.

Key features

  • Students at all levels can understand and apply the full writing process as they learn to revise and edit their work.
  • Editing activities help students notice and correct key grammar and punctuation errors.
  • Learning and internalizing the writing process helps students prepare to write in their college courses.
