这是一本不需要老师就可以自学的教科书。才两杯星巴克咖啡的价格。(我一般不光顾中国的星巴克。)

没有教科书,你只是路过看热闹。(就像我路过中国的星巴克。)

Important Considerations in Essay Development

Understanding the Nature and Length of an Assignment

Knowing Your Subject

Knowing Your Purpose and Audience

Determining Your Point of View

  First-Person Approach

  Second-Person Approach

  Third-Person Approach

 

Using Peer Review

We should try this in class.

 

Doing a Personal Review

1.   While you’re writing and revising a paragraph or essay, you should be constantly evaluating it in terms of unity, support, and organization. Use as a guide the detailed checklist on the inside back cover of this book. 

2.   After you’ve finished the next-to-final draft of a composition, check it for the sentence skills listed on the inside back cover. It may also help to read your work out loud. If a given sentence does not sound right—that is, if it does not read clearly and smoothly—chances are something is wrong. In that case, revise or edit as necessary until your composition is complete.
