Category Description for Writer's Inc. (9-12):

There is great similarity between the 2001 edition and the 2006 edition of Writer's INC Handbook including the cover and inside graphics. The content is more or less the same but organization is slightly different.

The Writers INC: School to Work is a specialized handbook that emphasizes writing not only in school but also at work. While containing much of the basic information of the Writers INC books (i.e. writing process, elements of writing, and forms of writing), there is an obvious change of emphasis with applications and samples drawn from the workplace. There are additional specific sections on workplace issues (ethics, goal-setting) and speaking and listening (basic communication skills) as well as reading, thinking, and learning (study skills).

A new Teacher's Guide to the 2006 edition of the Handbook is also available, which is similar to earlier editions and provides chapter notes that correspond to the handbook, teaching tips, assessment tools, additional learning strategies, and tips for getting the most out of the handbook.

Every five years the Great Source publishing company puts all the components of its delightful and thoroughly comprehensive writing and grammar program into a big pot and stirs it up. Then they repackage it in a new edition. Some of these editions are more homeschool-friendly than others. The mid-90's edition was good, but some of the components are no longer available. The "turn of the century" edition was problematic. However, this newest edition has come around full circle, and its components are put together in such a way that with minimal expense (the purchase of the student book) you have a strong, easy-to-use composition course. The additional components strengthen the grammar instruction, and the teacher's book fills in around the edges.

In this edition all grade levels have been

My daughter and son are high school students. The table of contents seemed very comprehensive of all types of writing and resources (MLA, APA) required for academic writing.

What is the publication year on this? Title has (08) which I assumed was for publication date 2008, but description lists September 1975.
There is also "Write for College" with a publication date of February 1997. Is that the newer product? Or what is the difference?
Thanks for your help!

BEST ANSWER: Your original assumption is correct. This is the 2008 edition. As far as I know, this is the current edition. The additional details mention of 1975 is inaccurate. The 1997 version of Write for College is an older edition. Much of the information between the two editions is the same as well as the general organizational structure of the book. The 2008 edition has updated information concerning internet research and documentation as well as any other time-sensitive updates.
