Description:

The Write Start: Paragraphs to Essays introduces the developing writer to the basic elements necessary for writing effective essays in the academic environment. The Third Edition focuses first on writing paragraphs that express thoughts about a topic, then on expanding the topic to the longer essay format. These skills will help students communicate more effectively and prepare them for the rigors of their first college-level composition course. New! Chapter warm-up exercises use photographs and focus student writing on each mode of development, such as description and narration. New! End-of-chapter writing assignments reinforce learning and help students apply what they have read. New! Reading Comprehension Questions in every chapter help students think about writing by understanding what they have read. New! Exercises in the Writer\'s Resources section provide additional practice for students who need help with grammar, punctuation, style, and word choice. New! "Three-Item Essay Map" presents a five-paragraph essay structure with three body paragraphs to help students understand, incorporate, and master the writing process. New! Professional and student essays illustrate the differences in essay models and allow students to leave the five-paragraph essay model for more complex formats as they become more proficient in their writing skills.
