Details: Product Description Using her unique M-A-P approach (Model-Analysis-Practice), Susan Fawcett�s books have guided hundreds of thousands of students through the writing process, from foundations of grammar, mechanics, and spelling through writing clear sentences and well-organized paragraphs. Her inductive approach; plentiful, high-interest student models and practices; and contemporary readings engage and motivate students. This new Eleventh Edition of GRASSROOTS triples the writing coverage-with new Chapters 5 and 6, �Thinking Through the Writing Patterns.� Also featured are new critical-thinking and viewing assignments throughout; eight fresh reading selections focused on issues and ideas, not narrative; and a new emphasis on academic and third-person writing. About the Author Susan Fawcett is the author of two market-leading college composition textbooks: Evergreen: A Guide to Writing (11th Edition) and Grassroots: The Writer's Workbook (12th Edition). Both texts have won the peer-juried McGuffey Award for sustained excellence, presented by the Text & Academic Authors Association. With degrees in English literature from Ohio University and Columbia University, New York, Ms. Fawcett�s honors include a Fulbright Fellowship to Birkbeck College, University of London, and a Woodrow Wilson Fellowship. She found her calling as a professor of English and Director of the Writing Lab at Bronx Community College, City University of New York, where, dismayed that existing textbooks didn�t help her students learn, she began creating her own worksheets that soon became Grassroots. Ms. Fawcett gave up her tenure to write fulltime--textbooks, poetry, and articles on education and health. She has led faculty workshops throughout the United States and in South Africa.
