The Persistent Writer: How to Thrive in your College Writing Class, differs from other writing texts by focusing on the student writer’s experience rather than on prescriptive rules for writing. Students meet learning outcomes as they explore their own responses to college and writing in reflections, and by creating academic papers based on templates. Learners develop stronger metacognitive skills through completing and scoring multiple research logs. Case histories and ample photographs of diverse students also help readers connect to their academic writing experiences.
