Introductory College Grammar and Writing guides students through the basics of grammar and writing using a unique step-by-step approach. The friendly, conversational style and engaging topics for both practice sentences and paragraphs create a tone that is sophisticated yet easy to understand. In the grammar section, students learn a logical process for finding subjects, verbs, phrases, and clauses and then how to identify and fix fragments, comma splices, and run-ons. In the writing section, students are guided through the writing process to write a variety of basic-level paragraphs with emphasis on topic sentence and support. Introductory College Grammar and Writing develops students' confidence and provides them with a solid foundation for learning more advanced material.
