How Writing Works

A Guide to Composing Genres

Second Edition

Author Jordynn Jack and Katie Rose Guest Pryal

  • The Genre Toolkit helps students identify a genre's structure, audience, and purpose
  • Integrated Assignments show students how to construct a series of small assignments that lead up to a major chapter project
  • Individual, Team, and Multimedia Projects draw from a variety of popular, professional, and academic examples to address rhetorical challenges of visual, written, and oral communication

New to this Edition:

  • Each element of the Genre Toolkit now has its own chapter in Part 1
  • Contains fewer project chapters to include the greatest hits. Each project chapter has been reduced from four genres to three coordinated examples that lead up to a chapter project.
  • A simplified design provides a more open appearance, with shorter paragraphs, more headings, and more visual content to break up the writing
  • Each chapter now includes learning objectives in the introduction and a recap of those objectives in the conclusion, providing students a clear idea of what they will be learning
  • Includes even more voices from a wide range of writers
  • More examples of exercises, sample readings, and advice on collaborative writing and multimedia composition
