Writing with a Purpose has always been distinguished by its emphasis on the role of purpose in the writing process, its comprehensive coverage for first-year writing, and its effective use of examples and exercises. Designed as a four-in-one (rhetoric, reader, research guide, handbook) for one- and two-semester composition courses, this respected and reliable text has helped train hundreds of thousands of students over the past three decades. The Fourteenth Edition retains the traditional strengths of the book, yet this classic has been revised and updated with a contemporary, full-color design to better engage visually oriented learners. Streamlined coverage has reduced or eliminated topics rarely taught in first-semester composition to allow for expanded material on such critical topics as research and argumentation. Available for fall 2003 courses, this edition is accompanied by a new technology program, Writing with a Purpose Online, that allows students to access writing guidance as needed while drafting and revising.
