No one writes for the introductory composition student like Kirszner and Mandell, and Practical Argument simplifies the study of argument. A straightforward, full-color, accessible introduction to argumentative writing, it employs an exercise-driven, thematically focused, step-by-step approach to get to the heart of what students need to understand argument. In clear, concise, no-nonsense language, Practical Argument focuses on basic principles of classical argument and introduces alternative methods of argumentation. Practical Argument forgoes the technical terminology that confuses students and instead explains concepts in understandable, everyday language, illustrating them with examples that are immediately relevant to students’ lives.

Best-selling authors and veteran college writing instructors Laurie Kirszner and Stephen Mandell believe that students learn to write best when they use their own writing as a starting point. In Writing First with Readings: Paragraphs and Essays, the authors take a simple yet effective approach to helping students improve their writing skills: visual writing prompts open every chapter and get students writing immediately. Then, throughout the chapter, students move between their own writing, writing models and instruction, and workbook-style mastery exercises so that they continually revise, rewrite, and improve their own writing. It is this formula that makes writing instruction meaningful and accessible for students. Thoughtful chapters on academic writing and success, research, and critical reading, along with high-interest essays, round out this new edition, making it the perfect introduction to college writing. This edition can be packaged with LaunchPad Solo for Writing First, which includes LearningCurve, the adaptive online quizzing program with immediate feedback that 95% of students surveyed recommended to their peers. Additional online multiple-choice grammar exercises offer even more practice with the grammar concepts students find most challenging. Also included are four additional online readings with questions and assignments that encourage critical reading and thinking.

THE WRITER'S HARBRACE HANDBOOK also provides several sample student papers in various disciplines, along with instruction for successfully completing similar assignments.
