Crafting Compositions guides students through the entire writing process, with exercises in planning, drafting, responding and revising, and polishing. In addition to completing free writing exercises, keeping a journal of informal responses, and revising sample compositions, students will draft, revise, and edit one composition per chapter. The textbook features: " Authentic readings to foster vocabulary development, show successful techniques, and serve as a jumping-off point for free writing. " A "learning log" in which students write to practice the writing lessons and tips presented. " A two-track system in which students simultaneously work with the writing of other students as they work on their own compositions. " Toolbox mini-lessons to review common grammar trouble spots. This mid-level writing text is appropriate for high school, community college, or university course
