Publisher Description:

Writers INC. Student Handbook is thoughtfully designed with college-and-career readiness in mind, starting with all facets of writingfrom constructing sentences and paragraphs to developing academic essays. Explanatory essays and essays of argumentation are included, as are responses to literature and many narrative forms. There are also special sections on writing across the curriculum, social media, updated MLA and APA guidelines, and test taking skills to help students' master new performance-based assessments.

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.

A reference book for my daughter starting college. Our home copy is falling apart from consistent use.

We use My Father's World curriculum and this is a required item. You offer it cheaper.

is this the newest edition?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Yes, as far as we know. Write Source and Writer's Inc, typically revise every five years or so which means there might be a revision next year.
Is the TEACHER'S guide necessary?
A shopper on Aug 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: No, everything is self explanatory and very simple to follow and understand. Writers INC is a handbook and not an actual curriculum; therefore, it is best used by a student with a general working knowledge of writing. It is a great reference to keep on hand to help polish writing assignments.
