TECHNIQUES FOR COLLEGE WRITING: THE THESIS STATEMENT AND BEYOND is a brief rhetoric that empowers students as writers by giving them the tools they need to create a precise and well-focused thesis. Using the thesis statement as the lens through which students can approach the entire thinking and writing process, TECHNIQUES is divided into three parts that build upon one another: Part I--Thinking Through the Thesis Statement, Part II--Thinking Through Your Writing Assignment, and Part III--Writing Beyond the Composition Classroom. A wide range of journal articles, book excerpts, student essays, paintings, magazine ads, poetry, and short stories make the text accessible to students, and "Thinking Through a Reading" questions promote active reading and in-class discussion. In-chapter practice exercises, writing applications, revision tools, and writing assignments help students gain confidence so that they can begin to incorporate the techniques they've learned in the book into their own personal writing styles.
