With grants from the Hewlett Packard and Carnegie Foundations, Chris Juzwiak and a growing team of developmental instructors continue to uncover how basic writers learn best, pinpointing what encourages them, what discourages them, and how to serve their learning needs. Stepping Stones reflects the results of these studies with scaffolded exercises and instruction, color-coded parts of speech and writing concepts, and creative activities. With a strong visual appeal and clear explanations, this innovative textbook presents sentence and paragraph patterns so that all students can immediately grasp them, and offers carefully constructed guidance for developing and organizing ideas—-two of the most difficult tasks for developmental students.Award-winning educator, Chris Juzwiak, knows that many basic writing students have experienced failure in the past, but that with the right tools they can also become confident and successful learners.

Romaine Washington's poetry is filled with images that are hot and cold, soft and hard. She pulls readers into her work with passion and determination as she draws on nature to illustrate her themes. Once we are in, we do not want to leave her poetic realm. - Dr. Beverly V. Head, author of Walking North Like an ocean's shifting waters, Romaine's poetry gently laps at your psyche before bursting into strong waves-either stirring up nostalgic longing or repulsion at bad memories. Her stylishly clever way with words, rich in imagery, transforms common life settings into unique scenarios that promise to never fade. -Yayoi L. Winfrey, Editor/Publisher, Brothers and Others: An anthology of Black women writing about Black men [Like] Lucile Clifton... Romaine's lyrical voice unmasks the hard truths of our human condition, particularly the oppression of women, through her unique use of diction, syntax, and extraordinary imagery, which engages the intellect and speaks to the souls of her readers - Dr. Catherine Humphrey, IAWP UCR Fellow Romaine Washington is a poet for our times. Her words evoke images that will linger in our minds long after the reading is done. Her poems are defibrillators of the soul - resuscitating our hearts to a world yearning for freedom." - Ewuare S.

This textbook provides instruction in college level rhetoric and writing. It offers readings, a research manual, a handbook and supports a range of approaches to teaching and learning, including collaboration, visual rhetoric, personal writing, writing about literature, writing in the community and the workplace, field research, portfolios, oral presentations, essay exams, and ESL. It contains step-by-step guides to writing specific kinds of essays -- remembering events, writing profiles, explaining a concept, finding common ground, arguing a position, proposing a solution, justifying an evaluation, speculating about causes, and interpreting stories. Because so much college writing requires strong argumentation skills, four of the assignment chapters focus on argumentative writing, and a separate strategies chapter covers theses, reasons and support, counterarguments, and logical fallacies. Three full chapters on research give students useful strategies not only for conducting field, library, and Internet research, but also for evaluating sources; deciding whether to quote, paraphrase, or summarize; avoiding plagiarism; and documenting sources. The authors have included 39 readings by well-known authors and various "fresh" voices, including 12 students, providing well-written examples of the different types of essays and papers that students might be asked to complete.

Formal writing assignments–presented step-by-step–ask students either to respond formally to the readings in the chapter or to use the genre to express themes of their own. Using reading and writing assignments, sentence activities, skill spotlights, evaluation charts, and more, Expressions teaches grammar, sentence, and paragraph skills in the context of both student and professional writing.

Why does modern life revolve around objectives? From how science is funded, to improving how children are educated -- and nearly everything in-between -- our society has become obsessed with a seductive illusion: that greatness results from doggedly measuring improvement in the relentless pursuit of an ambitious goal. In Why Greatness Cannot Be Planned, Stanley and Lehman begin with a surprising scientific discovery in artificial intelligence that leads ultimately to the conclusion that the objective obsession has gone too far. They make the case that great achievement can't be bottled up into mechanical metrics; that innovation is not driven by narrowly focused heroic effort; and that we would be wiser (and the outcomes better) if instead we whole-heartedly embraced serendipitous discovery and playful creativity. Controversial at its heart, yet refreshingly provocative, this book challenges readers to consider life without a destination and discovery without a compass.
