A Student Handbook Preparing Writers for College and Career

Write for College is the perfect handbook to help students write, read, study, speak, and learn in high school, college, and the workplace. The handbook helps them develop the writing rigor that colleges expect in argument essays, research reports, entrance essays, and much more. Students read dozens of high-interest models and use guidelines and checklists to create their own writing.
