This concise composition handbook offers innovative design features that make it the most accessible tabbed handbook available: moveable KeyTabs that allow students to personalize the book, a menu-driven Key to the Book, and color-coded divider tabs to help students find information quickly. Complete coverage of grammar and the writing, research, and documentation processes are complemented by helpful multilingual/ESL material, Writing Across the Curriculum elements, and The 5Cs of Style. In recent years, technology has touched every aspect of writing and research and the Third Edition of Keys for Writers keeps pace with students' changing needs. This thorough revision now offers a full-color design; substantial new material on evaluating sources and the use of technology for research and writing; expanded coverage of writing online and document design; the most up-to-date MLA, APA, CMS, CBE, and CGOS guidelines; integrated ESL resources; and an expanded section on argument. New! A new Part 5, Technology: For Communication, Document Design, and Work, presents the latest information on writing for online readers, e-mail discussion lists, and chatrooms. Ample illustrations--including a sample student web site and an online scannable resume--and easy-to-understand explanations address web site and document design as well as work-related documents. New! The new full-color design highlights important information and clearly depicts web graphics, charts, and other visuals. New! Completely up-to-date documentation coverage features the latest MLA and APA styles, as updated on their respective web sites, the Columbia Guide to Online Style, many new student examples, and a new student paper. Two rows of color-coded divider tabs aid students in finding information quickly. Red tabs (Parts 1-5) cover whole paper issues: the writing process, research and documentation, online and business writing, and document design. Gold tabs (Parts 6-10) cover sentence-level issues such as usage, grammar, punctuation, and mechanics. Color-coded Key to the Book, an initial menu page, aligns the table of contents with the divider tabs to help students flip directly to the part they need. Its colors correspond to those of the divider tabs. Unique moveable KeyTabs serve as bookmarks, extended margins, or note cards, and enable students to customize the book for quick access to the information they decide they need most. Key Points boxes present concise summaries and checklists to highlight vital information and encourage the development of editing and critical-thinking skills. New! Updated and expanded information includes a new section on evaluating sources, a new source list for 24 disciplines, compiled in consultation with 19 college librarians, and a thoroughly revised section on the process of writing a research paper. New! The expanded Writing an Argument section includes a sample student argument paper on telemarketing. Students learn to formulate an argument, support it with evidence, and address opposing views. New! Content changes and additions include integrated ESL coverage throughout, and increased emphasis on style, critical thinking, and writing across the curriculum.
